Chan is good at managing free-kicks and long passes. In the East Asia Football Championship held in Taipei in 2005, Taiwanese named him as "Hong Kong Beckham" because his free-kick skills are very good.

Club careerEdit

Chan started his football career at Sing Tao. He saw Wei Kwan Lung as his idol because his pace and shooting abilities impressed him greatly. Wei Kwan Lung was later banned from football for match-fixing, but he still encouraged Chan to play and not to follow in his footsteps.[1]

Sun HeiEdit

Chan scored in the extra time of the 2008–09 Hong Kong Senior Challenge Shield semi-final against Fourways Rangers to win the match 1:0 and take Sun Hei to the final.[2]

RangersEdit

Chan left Rangers on 12 June 2011 after a season in which he was not a regular starter.[3]

Pontic and Double FlowerEdit

Chan has reached an understanding to join Pontic for the 2011–12 Hong Kong First Division League season.[4] But in the end, Pontic gave up its promotion due to funding issues and Chan was left with no club to play for. Therefore, he could only play for Double Flower in the Second Division and waited to see if any opportunities would come up in the 2011–12 season.[5]

Sun HeiEdit

On 11 January 2012, Chan returned to his former club Sun Hei because head coach Ricardo was in need of more players due to the suspension of Kilama and Milovanovic following the match against Pegasus, when both were sent off and therefore suspended.[6]
