Feng Xiaoting (simplified Chinese: 冯潇霆; traditional Chinese: 馮瀟霆; pinyin: Féng Xiāotíng; born 22 October 1985 in Dalian, Liaoning) is a Chinese footballer who currently plays for Guangzhou Evergrande in the Chinese Super League.

Career[edit]

Sichuan Guancheng[edit]

Feng Xiaoting started his football career with Sichuan Guancheng in the 2003 league season where he quickly established himself as a regular. Despite being only 17 years old, he captained them for several games, making him the youngest club captain in Chinese professional league history.[1] Continuing where he left off in, his second season was considerably less productive after he was injured during the latter half of the season and missed much of the 2004 league season.

Dalian Shide[edit]

Being a promising young footballer with top tier experience, Feng quickly drew the attentions of Dalian Shide and transferred to them in the 2005 league season, even though he was still injured and missed much of the early stages of the season. Nevertheless during the latter half of the season, he started to play a vital part in Dalian's push for the league and cup double, where he saw them win both.[2] The following seasons though saw Feng play a smaller role within the club and it was only once Ji Mingyi left before he started to establish himself as an integral member of the Dalian team during the 2008 league season.

South Korea[edit]

Feng came close to signing with A.C. Siena during the summer of 2008. Their sporting director Manuel Gerolin watched all of China's matches during the 2008 Summer Olympics matches and was impressed by Feng, but problems with the player's registration delayed this possibility. With his contract about to end with Dalian Shide, Feng received offers from K-League sides Chunnam Dragons, Jeju United and Daegu FC during the 2009 offseason. He eventually signed a two-year contract with Daegu FC on a free transfer.[3] Feng made his debut for Daegu FC on 22 March 2009 against Pohang Steelers after coming on as a substitute at the 75th minute.

On 29 January 2010, Feng signed for K-League champions Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors on a free transfer.[4] He wore the number 15 shirt while playing for Jeonbuk. Feng did not have a starting role in the defense for Jeonbuk that season and was soon released by the club. He returned to China to sign with a Chinese Super League team.

Guangzhou Evergrande[edit]

Feng signed for Guangzhou Evergrande right before the start of the 2011 season. That year, with a tight defense only conceding 23 goals the entire season, saw Guangzhou Evergrande win their first ever first division title. In the 2012 season, Feng helped the team to a domestic double, winning both the Chinese Super League and the Chinese FA Cup.

International career[edit]

As a promising youngster, Feng was called up to the Chinese national team by then manager Arie Haan who gave him his senior debut in friendly match against Myanmar on 17 March 2004 in a 2–0 victory.[5] The following Chinese manager Zhu Guanghu decided that Feng was too inexperienced for the senior team and Feng was instead part of the Chinese under-23 national team that played in the 2008 Summer Olympics where he was the first choice centre back pair with Li Weifeng as China were knocked out in the group stage within the tournament.[6] After the tournament. Feng was promoted back into the senior team once again when the Chinese manager Vladimir Petrović included him in the 2010 FIFA World Cup qualification campaign and included him in 6 February 2008 game against Iraq in a 1–1 draw.[7] He soon became a regular for the national team and went on to win 2010 East Asian Football Championship.
