Li Chunyu (simplified Chinese: 李春郁; traditional Chinese: 李春鬱; Pinyin: Li Chūnyù) (born October 9, 1986 in Shenyang, Liaoning) is a Chinese football player who currently plays as a midfielder for Shijiazhuang Yongchang in the Chinese Super League.


Club career

Li Chunyu began his professional football career with Chinese Super League club Shenyang Ginde where he would make his league debut against Liaoning Zhongyu on October 31, 2004 in a 3-1 defeat. He would gradually establish himself as regular within the center of their midfield and when the club decided to move to Changsha and rename themselves Changsha Ginde F.C. he would join them. By the 2007 league season he would become an integral member of their team and go on to score his first league goal on March 19, against Shanghai Shenhua in a 1-1 draw.

In January 2010 he moved abroad to Europe to play for Serbian top tier club FK Rad Belgrade where he would go on to make his league debut on March 14, 2010 against OFK Beograd in a 3-2 defeat. During his time at the club he would receive very little playing time and was released at the end of the season. As a free agent he would transfer to K-League side Gangwon FC in July 2010 and would go on to make his league debut against Ulsan Hyundai on August 7, 2010 in a 2-2 draw. Despite only joining the club half way through their league campaign he would go on to make seven league appearances by the end of the season.

Next he returned to China and signed with Shaanxi Zhongjian Chanba playing in the Chinese Super League, a club renamed a year later to Guizhou Renhe.

On 4 January 2015, Li transferred to fellow Chinese Super League side Shijiazhuang Yongchang.

International career

As a youngster he was part of China national under-17 football team and was considered good enough to take part in the 2003 FIFA U-17 World Championship where he played in all of China's games during the tournament. His time within the Chinese set-up didn't really go much further until he gained regular playing time with Gangwon FC and it was only once he achieved this he was given his senior debut in a friendly against Latvia on November 17, 2010 in a 1-0 victory for China.
