Chinese super league side 'Jiangsu Suning' name Fabio Capello as coach 

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

The 70-year-old, who previously led England before resigning in 2012, joins former Premier League managers Luis Felipe Scolari, Andre Villas-Boas, Gus Poyet and Felix Magath in China.

Capello made his name at AC Milan in the 1990s, winning four Serie A titles and the Champions League. He then went on to win two La Liga titles in separate spells with Real Madrid and another Italian league crown with Roma.

England reached the last 16 of the 2010 World Cup under Capello, losing to Germany, and he resigned two years later after a disagreement over the stripping of the captaincy from John Terry.

A Jiangsu statement confirmed: "We have signed a working contract with Mr Fabio Capello. He will be the head coach. Welcome Fabio!"
