Nyasha Mushekwi's Dalian Yifang Appoints Former Real Madrid Boss Bernd Schuster As New Head Coach!

Nyasha Mushekwi's newly promoted Chinese Super League side, Dalian Yifang have appointed former Real Madrid boss, Bernd Schuster as the new coach to replace Ma Lin just three months into his contract.

The 58-year-old German legend, was appointed as the new Dalian Yifang manager on Tuesday after the dismissal of former coach, Ma Lin due poor start in the Chinese Super League.

Ma Lin who was appointed in December just before the start of the Chinese top flight league season, failed to win a single match from the three league matches played so far this season after taking over from Spaniard Juan Ramon Lopez Caro, who helped Yifang to get promotion from League One last year.

Schuster has a rich footballing history from having partnered with Diego Maradona at Barcelona in the early 80s during his playing days to managing teams like, Bundasliga's Fortuna Köln, Köln, Ukraine champions Shakhtar Donetsk, Spanish giants Real Madrid, Besiktas and Turkey's Málaga where he last managed in 2014.

Dalian Yifang fan favourite, Nyasha Mushekwi, could find his way back to the first team under the new manager after scoring a brace in Dalian Yifang Reserve side's 4-1 win over Beijing Guoan last Friday.

The flamboyant trio of Yannick Carrasco, Nicholas Gaitan and Jose Fonte remain Dalian Yifang's preferred choices to fill up the required quota of only three foreign players per club per match.
