Arie Haan's on deck for Tianjin Teda

Chinese Super League side Tianjin Teda have appointed Dutchman Arie Haan to replace former boss Zuo Shusheng, who was dismissed after the northern team failed to secure a place in the 2010 Asian Champions League.

Haan, 61, led China to a runners-up finish in the 2004 AFC Asian Cup but stepped down in November of that year following the country's elimination from the 2006 World Cup Asian qualifiers.

The former Holland international returned to China in June this year to succeed Wei Xin as coach of troubled CSL side Chongqing Lifan, who were relegated from the domestic top flight after finishing at the bottom of the 16-member league.

"After contacting a few candidates, we decided to pick Arie Haan, former Chinese national side coach, to manage Tianjin Teda next season,'' a club statement read.

Tianjin finished the sixth last season, six points behind champions Beijing Guoan and Haan was reportedly up against former Beijing Guoan coach Lee Jang-soo for the job.

Haan also managed Iranian side Persepolis in 2006 before becoming Cameroon national team boss in 2007.

He was then appointed head coach of Albania in December 2007 but his two-year was cancelled in April this year before he took over at Chongqing.

Haan was also banned by the Chinese Football Association for three matches this season for waving money at a referee during Chongqing's game against Beijing on August 3, implying the official had taken a bribe. Chongqing stunned the capital outfit with a 3-2 victory.
