The Chinese Super League has seen an influx of top class players in recent years but not many know that many top class coaches have also been moving to China.
In recent years the league has seen the likes of Obafemi Martins, Demba Ba, Jackson Martinez, Renato Augusto, Paulinho, Ramirez and Freddy Guarin.
This January transfer window has already seen John Mikel Obi, Carlos Tevez and Oscar move to China and here are the coaches they could be facing in the Asian country.

A World Cup winner with Italy in 2006, the former Juventus and Inter boss moved to China to take the reins at Guangzhou Evergrande and is now in charge of the national side.
