Schuster to become coach in China
Bernd Schuster introduces a new chapter and becomes a trainer in China. His predecessor had to take his hat after only three games.
Former German international Bernd Schuster (58) is the new head coach of the Chinese Super League club Dalian Yifang according to unanimous media reports. The 1980 European champions took over from Ma Lin, who had to go without a goal after three games of the season and three defeats.
Dalian had lost 8-0 to Shanghai SIPG at the start of the season. After Roger Schmidt (Beijing Guoan) and Ulli Stielike (Tianjin Teda), Schuster is the third German football teacher in China. Last Friday, Yifang lost 3-0 against the Schmidt team from Beijing.
Felix Magath had to leave Shandong Luneng in December 2017 because the contract was not renewed.
