Lee Hoe-taik (이회택, born 11 October 1946) is a South Korean football player and manager.


Lee was nicknamed as 'Leopard' because of his innate stamina, rapid pace and powerful shooting. He was also a genius. Properly had not trained football, Lee started his youth career in the high school. However, he was selected for the national youth team after 2 years, and national team the next year. He had had great talent, but regretted his player life which had been slothful and dishonest.[1]
