Fabio Capello ‘goes’ to China

Former England manager Fabio Capello is the latest high-profile coach to move to the Chinese Super League, signing a contract with Jiangsu Suning.

The 70-year-old, who led England for four years before resigning in 2012, joins former Premier League managers Luis Felipe Scolari, Andre Villas-Boas, Gus Poyet and Felix Magath in China.
A Jiangsu statement confirmed: “We have signed a working contract with Mr Fabio Capello. He will be the head coach. Welcome Fabio!”
Capello made his name at AC Milan in the 1990s, winning four Serie A titles and the Champions League. He went on to win two La Liga titles in separate spells with Real Madrid and another Italian league crown with Roma.
He also won Serie A twice with Juventus but both were revoked and they were demoted to the second division for their involvement in Italy’s match-fixing scandal.
