George Caulkin Along With Sky Sports Confirm Rafa To Be Next Coach Of Dalian Yifang



Sky Sports has just confirmed earlier reports that Rafa Benitez will in fact take the job as manager of Dalian Yifang in the Chinese Super League.

Here is a tweet they have just sent out:

This information also has been confirmed in an interview by George Caulkin in the Times.

Here is his tweet with a link to the interview:

Here is another tweet confirming that Rafa is in fact in China right now signing for Dalian Yifang.

We are happy that Rafa will have an opportunity to coach in China though we feel that it is a tragedy in that he will not be coaching at the top level and also for Newcastle that they have lost out on a great coach.

He will join ex-Napoli midfielder Marek Hamsik who is currently with the Chinese club.

    So SJH went scouting for players now did he. Get a grip man. The only reason we had a good team then was because of KKs connections and the fact that he was Kevin Keegan. End of.

    Keegan said he was finished with football UNTIL SJH contacted him and told him of his plans. At which point he changed his mind and agreed to be manager. Your memory is bad, or you simply haven’t a clue wtf you’re talking about mate. Sorry, I’m not falling out over this, but you’re changing history here every post you make! 🙂

    Where is the ambition in doing that.
    He surely cant be skint enough to do that.
    I did think he would’ve stayed in Europe.
    Maybe he does need th

    Oh, and how did it end? SJH not honouring promises to KK, so he walked. Rings some bells “not keeping promises”; who else does that? They are all a similar type.

    I just hope that the new owners, whoever they are, want to grow the business not stifle it.

    OO,
    Mines a coffee or a beer, thanks.
    I don’t like it when people try to defend money grabbing capitalists. As they say “the love of money is the root of all evil”.
    I just hope the Arab take over is not about money, but about prestige or something other than making money, otherwise, I think that I will go to watch my local amateur team.
