China coach to go

Sports | 1 Nov 2018

China's veteran head coach Marcello Lippi will not renew his contract with the national football team after it expires in January, state media reported.

In an interview at a football awards ceremony in Monaco, Lippi said that he wants to return home to his family after working abroad for six years.

During the Italian coach's tenure, the Chinese team's performance has remained lackluster. Last year China failed to qualify for the World Cup in Russia.
