Former Guangzhou Evergrande manager has confirmed that he will join Tianjin Quanjian as a replacement for the departed Brazilian Vanderlei Luxemburgo.

The former World Cup winner had his coaching debut as an assistant manager for Cosmin Olaroiu at the Emirati club Al-Ahli Dubai FC, before joining Chinese Super League outfit Guangzhou Evergrande and eventually leading the team to a league title in 2014.

Former Real Madrid manager Vanderlei Luxemburgo was appointed by Tianjin Quanjian in September 2015 as the team aims to secure promotion to the top-flight league.

However, Tianjin Quanjian is now having to settle for the 8th spot on the league table, as the team managed to win just four matches, resulting in Luxemburgo’s departure from the club.
