World Cup winner Felipe Luiz Scolari has unexpectedly come under pressure at after an indifferent start to the 2016 season, sources reported.

The Chinese club has failed to record a win in the AFC Champions League after two matches, losing at Sydney FC and drawing Urawa Reds.

In the domestic league, the team suffered an upset defeat at the hand of Chongqing Lifan, although two wins against Changchun Yatai and at the Guangzhou derby have eased pressure on the under-fire manager.

Scolari took charge at Guangzhou Evergrande in 2015, helping the club win the league title as well as the AFC Champions League in his first season.
