Marcello Lippi has started his Chinese adventure with a victory on the Guangzhou Evergrande bench.

The 2006 World Cup winning Italy Coach signed for the club on Thursday and quickly made his debut on Sunday.

It was a 1-0 victory over Qingdao Jonoon, who are currently propping up the table, decided by Gao Lin’s 68th minute goal.

Guangzhou Evergrande were already top of the table before Lippi took over.
