Marcelo Lippi Named China Coach Again

Marcello Lippi has been named coach of China for a second stint as they prepare for 2022 World Cup qualifying.

The former Italy and Juventus boss was at the helm of China for more than two years before leaving the post in January following a quarter-final exit at the Asian Cup.

He was replaced by Fabio Cannavaro, who stepped down last month to focus on coaching Guangzhou Evergrande Taobao.

The Chinese Football Association (CFA) confirmed on Friday it had once again appointed Lippi.

Lippi led Juventus to five Serie A titles in two stints with the club, also claiming the 1995-96 Champions League during his time with the Italian club.

He also led Italy to the team's 2006 World Cup triumph, becoming the first coach to win both a World Cup and a Champions League title as a manager.
