Official: Lippi returns to China

Former Juventus and Italy boss Marcello Lippi has been officially reappointed CT of China.

Lippi only vacated the role in January after China’s exit from the Asian Cup, with Fabio Cannavaro chosen as his successor.

However, it was confirmed on Thursday that the 71-year-old had taken back the reins as Cannavaro opted to focus on leading Chinese club Guangzhou Evergrande.

Lippi won 13, drew eight and lost 11 of his 31 games during his first spell with the Asian nation.
