Fabio Cannavaro Named China’s New Head Coach

Former Italy captain Fabio Cannavaro has been named as China’s new head coach, succeeding Marcello Lippi.

Ex-Parma, Real Madrid and Juventus defender Cannavaro, 45, who won the World Cup in 2006, will continue to manage Chinese Super League side Guangzhou Evergrande.

Lippi, who quit after China’s quarter-final exit at the Asian Cup in January, will stay on as an advisor.

Cannavaro’s first match is against Thailand in the China Cup on 21 March.
