Slaven Bilic has been selected as the new head coach of Chinese Super League side Beijing Guoan in less than a month after getting fired from West Bromwich

The Ex-Croatia international player and manager was in charge at The Hawthorns and helped them advance from the

Sky Bet Championship

to

Premier League

last season yet they struggled to hold their ground in England's top-class league.

The club sat nineteenth with seven points out of 13 fixtures when Bilic's 18-month stretch in charge was finished and he was supplanted by Sam Allardyce on December 16. 

In any case, Bilic has immediately proceeded onward as he has marked a two-year contract to succeed previous Lyon coach Bruno Genesio at Beijing Guoan, who completed third in a year ago's league.

A club announcement on Twitter said:

“We are honoured to announce a 2-year contract with our new first team coach Mr. Slaven Bilic and coach team, welcome to Beijing.

“We would like to extend our sincere gratitude and appreciation for all of the hard work and dedication Mr. Bruno Genesio made for us. We wish you all the best in your future professional endeavours.”
