Zou Zheng (simplified Chinese: 邹正; traditional Chinese: 鄒正; pinyin: Zōu Zhèng; born 7 February 1988) is a Chinese footballer who currently plays for Guangzhou Evergrande in the Chinese Super League.

Club career[edit]

Zou Zheng started his football career playing for Qingdao Jonoon's youth academy before he was promoted to the first team during the 2007 season. He made his debut for the club on 4 November 2007 in a 2-2 draw against Shenzhen Xiangxue.[1] The following season saw him gain significant playing time as a substitute, which also led to him scoring his first goal for the club on 15 September 2008 in a 2-1 win against Dalian Shide.[2] His progression would continue the following season due to his versatility which saw him become a regular for the club.

On 24 December 2014, Zou transferred to Chinese Super League side Guangzhou Evergrande.[3] He made his debut for the club on 9 March 2015 in a 2-1 win against Shijiazhuang Ever Bright. Zou scored his first goal for the club on 20 June 2015 in a 2-1 win against Shandong Luneng; however, he was also sent off during stoppage time.[4] On 21 September 2015, Zou scored his second goal of the season in a 2-1 win against derby rivals Guangzhou R&F, scoring in the 90th minute to seal the win.[5] Zou made thirty appearances for Guangzhou and won his first Super League and AFC Champions League titles at the end of the 2015 season. On 17 December 2015, Zou suffered a fracture of fibula and dislocation of ankle joint in his left leg during the 2015 FIFA Club World Cup semifinals against Barcelona when he was knocked off balance by Luis Suárez.[6][7] He received surgery twice in Japan on 18 December 2015 and 4 January 2016 respectively.[8][9] Zou made his return from injury on 15 October 2016 in a 6-0 win against Shijiazhuang Ever Bright.[10]

International career[edit]

Zou made his debut for the Chinese national team on 8 September 2015 in a 3-0 win against Maldives in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification.[11]
