Manuel Pellegrini signs for Chinese club

Former Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has joined Chinese Super League side Hebei China Fortune.

City replaced Pellegrini, 62, with Pep Guardiola in June, despite the Chilean winning the Premier League in 2014.

Pellegrini joins fellow high profile coaches Sven-Goran Eriksson and Luis Felipe Scolari in China.

Hebei’s squad contains Argentina’s Ezequiel Lavezzi, former Arsenal forward Gervinho and ex-Chelsea youngster Gael Kakuta.

They sit fifth in the CSL, with seven games remaining.
