Ex-Man City boss Pellegrini: I chose Hebei China Fortune over Euro offers

Former Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini is happy with his move to China.

Pellegrini has taken the job at Hebei China Fortune, despite fielding offers in Europe.

The ex-Real Madrid coach said: "I received bids from several European clubs, but I was drawn to Hebei, when they showed me their plan.

"It's a club with high expectations and a long term plan."

Pellegrini left City at the end of last season to be replaced by Pep Guardiola.
