For more on Lippi's appointment, we talked to Zhu Guanghu, who coached the Chinese national team in 2005, and led the side to the final of the Asian Cup in 2007.

"Lippi knows the Chinese Super League and Asia which is an advantage. He also guided Guangzhou Evergrande to the AFC Champions league title and three straight CSL titles. He coached the team to develop oppressive and aggressive playing methods. His players used an offensive style on defence to win the ball and get into the opposition's area through quick attacks that created opportunities to score. I think considering everything including his control of his teams, proves that he is the best person for the position and heavily favored. Lippi also brings hope for Chinese fans. He has his own ideas on football and different coaching methods, both in techniques and tactics. And he is capable of controlling the team. So I think he could introduce advanced ideas to the Chinese game. And he will make plans based on the current players' abilities as he knows China and our advantages. I believe he can bring a huge change for the national team during the following matches. And he could help them develop in techniques and tactics," said Zhu Guanghu.
