Lü Zheng (simplified Chinese: 吕征; traditional Chinese: 呂徵; pinyin: Lǚ Zhēng; born 25 February 1985) is a Chinese footballer who currently plays for Shanghai Shenhua in the Chinese Super League.

Club career[edit]

Lü Zheng started his football career with Shandong Luneng when he made his debut against Shenyang Ginde on 26 June 2004 in a 1-1 draw.[1] This led to him making several further appearances during the season, which subsequently saw him play understudy to Li Jinyu and Han Peng as the team's main strikers. Often coming on as substitute, he would see the team win several league titles and cup trophies with the 2007 season being his most productive season playing as a forward.[2] The following season saw Lü shift positions to right winger and he gradually saw himself gain more playing time as a result as well as a playing a considerably larger part in the team's next few seasons.[3]

On 14 December 2014, Lü transferred to fellow Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua.[4] On 8 March 2015, he made his debut for the club in a 6-2 win against Shanghai Shenxin.[5] He scored his first goal for Shanghai on 3 June 2015 in a 3-1 away defeat against Changchun Yatai.[6]

International career[edit]

Lü made his debut for the Chinese national team on 17 February 2008 in a 3-2 loss against South Korea.[7]
