Hao Haidong ( ; born August 25, 1970) is the current chairman of Tianjin Songjiang F.C. and a former Chinese international football player who was widely regarded as the best striker China has ever produced. Hao holds the record for being China's all-time leader in goals scored. He would predominantly gain the majority of his goals during his time with top tier side Dalian Wanda where he would see the club dominate Chinese football and win six Chinese league titles while personally winning the Chinese Football Association Golden Boot three times. Internationally, his goals would be crucial to China in which the country qualified for the 2002 FIFA World Cup for the first time and became runners-up in the 2004 AFC Asian Cup. While still playing he would also take on the management position at Dalian as a caretaker before moving to English club Sheffield United for a short time before he retired.
