Shenzhen FC sack Donadoni

Shenzhen FC have sacked Roberto Donadoni after three straight defeats, including a 3-1 loss to Fabio Cannavaro’s Guangzhou Evergrande.

All Asian Football have confirmed the Italian 56-year-old and his staff will leave the club, who sit third to bottom in the Chinese Super League.

“After a friendly negotiation, the club has decided that Mr. Donadoni will no longer be the head coach of Shenzhen Kaisa FC,” the club said in a statement, according to Sky Sport Italia journalist Gianluca Di Marzio.

“At the same time, Donadoni’s staff members will also cease their duties.”

The former Italy CT moved to China in July 2019, after three years at Bologna. He has previous stints with Parma, Cagliari, Napoli and Genoa.

“We thank Mr. Donadoni and his staff for their efforts and their contribution to Shenzhen Kaisa over the past year,” the statement read.

“We wish them the best of luck in the future.”
