Former Newcastle United boss Rafa Benitez has been confirmed as the new manager of Chinese Super League club Dalian Yifang.

The Spaniard said he decided to go because it is an "incredible project" and he has the full backing of the club's leadership.
It is reported he will earn £12m a year.
Benitez left the Magpies at end of last week when his contract expired, saying the club didn't share his vision.
