Goal Asia Team of the Month - May 2013
2. Right-back: Zhang Linpeng (China, Guangzhou Evergrande)
The speedy and physical right full-back helped Guangzhou Evergrande overcme Central Coast Mariners with a 5-1 victory over the two legs in the Asian Champions League (ACL) round of 16. This was not it as his purple patch continued in the Chinese Super League with his team going undefeated in four matches. Not only adept at defending, he has scored three goals in the last month against Shanghai Shenhua, Liaoning Whowin and Hangzhou Greentown.
