Previously, Long Dong was selected to the Venezuelan national team, but because Dalian did not keep relegation, he eventually retained the teams top scorer. So far, he has scored 9 goals in this seasons Super League.
Dalian peoples club official said: Thank Long Dong for his great contribution to the team during the critical period. According to his own will, the club reserved a ticket for him to return home after being relegated, so that he can have more sufficient time to practice with his national team mates. I wish him all the best in the national team and win glory for the country.
Although Dalians fighting style has not been better, the fight for a better style has not been carried forward.
