Pic: Ex-Manchester United man Dong Fangzhuo has let himself go

by Up Front

It doesn’t always work out for players who join Manchester United and it was always going to be an uphill battle for Dong Fangzhuo.

After moving to Old Trafford aged 19 in 2004, he played just once under Sir Alex Ferguson before leaving in 2008.

Now 29, he is playing for Hebei Zhongji in the second tier of Chinese football and has put on a few pounds.
