Club careerEdit

Lee Kin Wo made his debut in Hong Kong First Division League on 13 October 1985 when he was 18 years old. He is most memorable for participating the friendly match South China Athletic Association (Lee is loaned from Eastern for that match, along with Dale Tempest) versus São Paulo, the Brazilian team with national representatives Cafu, Leonardo Araújo and Zetti at that time. Finally, South China won the match by 4–2 and Lee scored the fourth goal of his team.

In May 2000, during an international friendly hosted by Macau, Lee kicked the football toward the upper body of the Macau referee Choi Kuok-kun, after several unfair decisions were being awarded in favour of the home side.[2][3] Hong Kong eventually won the match by 1-0 and Choi was banned from officiating for life.

Coaching careerEdit

He was appointed as the head coach of Hong Kong national football team on 22 May 2007.[4] The first match he led was a friendly match played away against Indonesia national football team. Hong Kong lost by 0–3 in the match.

Lee was appointed as head coach of Eastern for the second time on 19 January 2018 following the resignation of Szeto Man Chun.[5]

Personal lifeEdit

He resides with his family on Peng Chau island. His eldest son Lee Ka Wah is a former footballer.
