Former Manchester City manager, Manuel Pellegrini has been announced as the new manager of Hebei China Fortune.

The Chilean has been without a job since he was replaced at the end of 2015/16 season by Pep Guardiola.

He will be coaching the likes of Ezequiel Lavezzi, Gervinho, Stephane Mbia, Gael Kakuta and Ersan Gulum at the Qinhuangdao Olympic Sports Center Stadium.

The club were reportedly keen to land Roberto Mancini as their first choice, but the Italian seemingly turned down the offer.

Hebei are fifth in the CSL after 23 games, 15 points off leaders Guangzhou Evergrande Taobao, who are coached by World Cup winner Luiz Felipe Scolari.

They are five points off the AFC Champions League places with seven games remaining this season.
