Rafa Benitez has been confirmed as Dalian Yifang manager after leaving Newcastle. Benitez's departure from Newcastle was announced last week after failing to agree a contract extension. The Spaniard released a statement on Monday, stating Mike Ashley and Newcastle's board didn't share his vision for the club.
And just 24 hours later, he is back in management after agreeing a bumper deal in China.
