Ex-Wales boss Coleman takes reins at Hebei China Fortune


By Robert Jones

Former Wales boss Chris Coleman has been appointed the new manager of Chinese Super League club Hebei China Fortune.

The Chinese outfit confirmed Coleman's appointment on social media yesterday, with the ex-Sunderland boss succeeding Manuel Pellegrini at the helm.

Pellegrini left China for West Ham United, while Coleman was released from his Sunderland contract at the end of the season after the Black Cats dropped into League One.

"The board has decided that the club will employ Chris Coleman as head coach of Hebei China Fortune," the Chinese club posted on micro blogging site Weibo.

The club's website stated they had appointed Coleman as their new head coach.

"After a study, the club will appoint Christopher Patrick Coleman as head coach of Hebei Huaxia Happy Football Team," the statement read.

"The former Wales team coach has been shortlisted for FIFA's 2016 Best Coaches."

Coleman won 32 caps for Wales in a 16-year career comprising stints at Swansea, Crystal Palace, Blackburn and Fulham, before moving into management at Craven Cottage.

The 48-year-old guided Wales to the semi-finals of Euro 2016, before moving on to take charge at Sunderland in November 2017.
