World Cup winner Lippi comes out of retirement to manage China

Written by

Marcello Lippi – who won the 2006 World Cup with Italy – has come out of retirement to become the new manager of China.

Lippi, 68, had two spells in charge of the Italian national team and won five Serie A titles and the Champions League with Juventus.

He retired from coaching after winning a third straight league title with Chinese side Guangzhou Evergrande in 2014.

China are ranked 84th in the world.

The Italian replaces Gao Hongbo, who resigned earlier this month after a 2-0 defeat in Uzbekistan dealt a further blow to China’s slim hopes of qualifying for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

They are bottom of Group A in Asia with one point from four games.
