Shanghai Shenhua have confirmed they have terminated the contract of coach Jean Tigana after just five months. Speculation has been rife over Tigana's position for several weeks and confirmation he had left came via a statement on the club's official website.

Former DR Congo boss Jean-Florent Ikwange Ibenge has taken over on a caretaker basis while former Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka and one-time England keeper Ian Walker are part of a five-man coaching team.
