Beijing Sinobo Guoan finished ninth in the Chinese Super League in 2017 and while Schmidt, a former Bayer Leverkusen manager, is to stay in China, McGuinness is to look for a new opening closer to home.“I would like to thank the owner of the club, Mr Joe, the GM, Mr Li Ming and everyone associated with the club,” he said.“The respect and hospitality I have received since I arrived in Beijing has been fantastic. Every day working at the club has been thoroughly enjoyable.“I would also like to thank Roger for giving me the opportunity to be part of his management team. It has been an amazing experience working under a top European coach and I have learned so much from him. I feel my experience in Beijing has set me ups for the next stage of my coaching development and I look forward to a new chapter in Europe.”Jim McGuinness leaves Beijing post for ‘new chapter in Europe’ was last modified: January 10th, 2018 by Chris McNultyShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:BeijingBeijng Sinobo GuoanChinaGlentiesJim McGuinnesslast_img
