GUANGZHOU, June 4 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Super League club Guangzhou R&F officially appointed former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson as the club's new coach until the end of 2014.

The club was reported to ink a contract of more than 2 million euros, and a one or two years optional clause.

"Mr. Eriksson is one of the most famous coaches in the world, we believe with his ability and experience we could do better in Chinese Super league," Lu Yi, vice president of the Chinese club, told Xinhua on Tuesday.

The 65-year-old Swede has won more than 20 major trophies as a manager with a variety of clubs in Sweden, Portugal, Italy and England. He also guided England to final 8 in 2004 European Championships and the 2006 World Cup before taking rein of national teams of Mexico and Cote d'Ivoire.
