Wang Wanpeng (simplified Chinese: 王万鹏; traditional Chinese: 王萬鵬; pinyin: Wáng Wànpéng, born June 9, 1982 in Dalian, Liaoning) is a Chinese football player who currently plays for China League One side Dalian Aerbin.

Club career[edit]

After playing for various youth teams in Dalian and Shanghai, Wang would settle at Changchun where he would join Changchun Yatai to start his career. Beginning his professional football career in 2001 he would become a squad regular and help them win the second tier league title in the 2003 league season. Unfortunately there was no promotion that year and he would have to wait until Changchun Yatai came second in the 2005 league season when they won promotion to the China Super League. He was diagnosed with heart disease in early 2004 and received surgery on 26 May.[1] He lost his position after the surgery until 2007 when Gao Hongbo became the new manager of the team. He became a start player in the team that would go on to win the 2007 Chinese Super League title.[2] On 19 March 2008, Wang torn the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee in a 2008 AFC Champions League match which Changchun tied with Adelaide United 0–0, ruling him out for the rest of the season. He returned to field in 2010 season, making 28 appearances as Changchun Yatai reached second place of the league and gained the entry into 2010 AFC Champions League. Wang became a substitute player in 2010 when team manager Shen Xiangfu decided to give chances to young players.[3] He gained back his position in 2011 season, scoring 3 goals in 27 appearances. On 15 October 2011, he waved the finger towards fans in a league match against Beijing Guoan, which resulted in a ban of 6 matches and him being fined ¥30,000.[4]

On 31 January 2015, Wang transferred to China League One side Dalian Aerbin.[5]

International career[edit]

On 10 January 2008, Wang Wanpeng made his international debut for China national team in a friendly against United Arab Emirates in a 0-0 away draw.[6]
