Rafael Benitez is heading to China after the former Newcastle manager announced he had joined Dalian Yifang.
The Spaniard's Newcastle contract ended on Sunday, with Benitez saying he and the club's hierarchy had been unable to find a shared vision for the future.
The 59-year-old is unsurprisingly back in work already, posting on social media on Tuesday that he has joined Chinese Super League side Dalian.
In a short video, the former Liverpool and Real Madrid boss shared the messaged "welcome Rafa Benitez" with the caption: "New Challenge, New Chapter".
He then added: "After a long path, we start a new challenge. I am happy to begin this project with Dalian Yifang."
Newcastle hope to have Rafael Benitez's replacement in post before they head for China later this month.Read the full story ›
