Former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson has been named head coach of Chinese club Guangzhou R & F after leaving Al Nasr yesterday.
The 65-year-old had requested to leave his role as technical director of the United Arab Emirates club after being offered the new opportunity in China.
A statement on the Guangzhou website said: "The club's board of directors has today officially hired Sven-Goran Eriksson as Guangzhou football coach until December 2014.
"Coach Li Bing will from today no longer serve as the acting head coach."
China is just the latest in a long list of destinations for the well-travelled Swede, who has previously coached the national teams of Mexico and Ivory Coast as well as numerous clubs, including Lazio and Manchester City.
