Croatian football coach Slaven Bilic will continue his career in Beijing Kuo-an. He signed a two-year contract with the Chinese Super League club.
The 52-year-old helmsman last worked at West Bromwich Albion, who fired him in mid-December after adverse performance. Bilič thus became the first coach in the current season of the English Premier League to lose his post.
Until then, the newcomer to the highest competition has collected seven points in 13 matches, added only one in the next four and still holds the penultimate position.
Bilič replaced the third team of the last season of the Chinese league as coach of the Frenchman Bruno Genesis. The new year of the competition will start in the spring, most likely in a “bubble”. The BBC website informed about it.
