Du Wenhui (simplified Chinese: 杜文辉; traditional Chinese: 杜文輝; pinyin: Dù Wénhuī) is a versatile Chinese football player able to play in numerous attacking positions.

Club career[edit]

Originally starting his youth career at Beijing Guoan his performances were impressive enough for Eintracht Frankfurt to take him into their youth team.[1] Du Wenhui however would return to Beijing Guoan to start his professional senior career in the 2001 season.[2] He has since continued to play for Beijing Guoan throughout his career, though he mainly plays as a striker he has had to often sacrifice his position to the numerous foreign strikers who have played for the team or play out of position. Despite rarely playing in his favoured position his versatility in attack has always meant that he remains a consistent regular within the team and this would help Beijing win the 2009 Chinese Super League title.

In January 2011, Du transferred to top tier side Jiangsu Sainty and in his debut season he would be part of the team that finished in Jiangsu's highest ever league finish of fourth.[3]

International career[edit]

Du Wenhui would start his international career on February 7, 2007 in a friendly against Kazakhstan in a 2-1 win where he came on as a substitute for Li Jinyu.[4] He would go on to make several further friendly appearances, however all were as a substitute and he failed to gain a regular place within the team.
