Club career[edit]

Sichuan Guancheng[edit]

Liu Yu started his professional football career in 2004 with top tier club Sichuan Guancheng when he made his league debut against Beijing Guoan on March 16, 2004 in a 1-1 draw in Sichuan's first game of the season.[1] He would quickly establish himself as Sichuan's first choice left-back and would feature in sixteen league games throughout the season. By the next season he would continue to be a prominent member of the team, however he found himself without a club at the beginning of the 2006 Chinese Super League when Sichuan Guancheng disbanded.[2]

Without a club Liu Yu would move to reigning league champions Dalian Shide F.C. where he would make his league debut against Liaoning F.C. on March 18, 2006 in a 2-0 win.[3] Once again he would quickly establish himself within the team and become their first choice left-back and make twenty league appearances in his debut season. By the next season Zhai Yanpeng regained his place as Dalian's left-back and Liu Yu was allowed to leave by the end of the season. This saw Liu Yu join fellow Chinese Super League team Henan Construction and while he was a regular throughout the season he only remained with them for one season before joining Chengdu Blades at the beginning of the 2009 Chinese Super League season.
