Chinese Super League club Dalian Yifan has unveiled former Newcastle manager, Rafael Benitez as their new head coach.
Concise News gathered that the former Newcastle United and Liverpool boss will be replacing Choi Kang-hee at the helm.
Benitez left Premier League side Newcastle after failing to agree on a contract extension at the end of last month.
The Spanish tactician takes over Dalian Yifan who is 10th on the CSL table following a 3-1 win over fellow strugglers Beijing Renhe on Saturday.
Choi resigned on Monday for “personal reasons”, Chinese media reported, leaving Dalian free to appoint Benitez.
The Spaniard takes over a squad that features Marek Hamsik, who played under Benitez during his time at Italian side Napoli, as well as former Atletico Madrid winger Yannick Carrasco.
Benitez’s first game in charge of Dalian will be on Sunday when the club take on Henan Jianye in the league.
