Fabio Capello returns to coaching with Chinese Super League club Jiangsu Suning 

Fabio Capello had been out of management since he was sacked by Russia in 2015, but has now become the latest high-profile name to move to the burgeoning Chinese league.

The 70-year-old joins the likes of Marcello Lippi, Fabio Cannavaro, Luis Felipe Scolari and Andre Villas-Boas as managers in China, taking over a team which contains Brazilian duo Ramires and Alex Teixeira. 

“Today we have signed a working contract with Mr Fabio Capello. He will be the head coach of our team since today. Welcome Fabio!” read a statement from Jiangsu.

Capello spent four years in charge of England before resigning in February 2012, just months before the European Championships.
