|Former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson is poised to land his second big-money contract in the Chinese -Super League (CSL) after leaving Guangzhou R&F following just one full season Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Løbesko Core Sort Hvid , reports said Monday.
The Swede is being hotly tipped to join Shanghai East Asia where his coaching team will more than double their -current salaries, Sina Sports website said.
The move follows a 15-month spell in Guangzhou, Guangdong Province, where he was reportedly earning up to $3 million a year.
The highly ambitious Shanghai club will spend 500 million yuan ($82 million) on developing their side next season, the report said Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Løbesko Core Sort Lyserød , without saying whether Eriksson will have full control over the funds.
The 66-year-old left his -position as manager of Guangzhou by mutual agreement last week after taking the team to third in the CSL.
"Shanghai East Asia will publicly announce on the 18th [Tuesday] that Eriksson has been installed," Sina said -Monday.
Eriksson joined Guangzhou in June last year on an 18-month contract which reports in China and Europe said was worth up to $3 million a year.
The appointment saw him face off in derby games in the soccer-mad city with former Italy manager Marcello Lippi, a World Cup winner who led cash-rich Guangzhou Evergrande to their fourth successive Chinese title this year.
Shanghai East Asia finished fifth this season, and the Sina Sports report said, "In the new 2015 season Adidas NEO Lite Racer Sort Hvid Herre Dame Sko , there will be a -budget of 500 million yuan to build Shanghai into a power that can compete with Evergrande."
The portal also cited a "source close to the matter" as saying, "Since leaving Guangzhou, Eriksson did not fly to England to have a vacation; he flew directly to Shanghai and is awaiting the news conference that will announce him as coach."
Guangzhou R&F were 13th in the 16-team CSL when -Eriksson took over. They finished sixth in 2013 and clinched a place in the Asian Champions League with a third-place finish this season.
In advance of next week's Major League Baseball All-Star Game, Commissioner Rob Manfred will probably speak out about the future of the designated hitter - a position implemented by the American League in 1973, but eschewed by the National League to this very day.
Not surprisingly Herre Pharrell Adidas NMD Human Race Sort Hvid Løbesko , baseball fans are divided on this issue. Proponents feel that -allowing a non-pitcher to hit allows for more offense, and thus more excitement for paying -customers. Critics claim that leaving the pitcher's spot in the lineup requires managers to consider strategic maneuvers such as sacrifice bunts, pinch hitters and double switches.
So, which side is right? Actually, both. Yes Herre Originals NMD High Top Adidas Sko Brun Hvid , having another legitimate hitter in the lineup holds American League pitchers' feet to the fire, forcing them to confront an entire lineup over and over again.
And yes, watching National League managers manipulate their bullpens and benches through the late innings of a low-scoring pitchers' duel is a treat for baseball strategists.
The solution is ridiculously simple - keep the DH in the American League, and keep requiring pitchers to bat in the National League. Left-brained fans might blanch at this disconnect, but any semblance of "equality" went out the window when Bud Selig introduced an "unbalanced schedule" dictated by inter-league play.
The players' union Dame Originals NMD High Top Adidas Sko Lyserød Hvid , -carping for additional roster spots in the National League, certainly won't like the move.
But American sports fans -clinging to a rapidly disappearing middle class can probably live with the disapproval of a union that protects the interests of -millionaires.
More than any other professional American sport, baseball is defined by historical contrast.
Three-hour games vs -societal attention deficit -disorder. -Tobacco-spitting roughnecks vs analytics-crunching geeks. Pot-bellied sluggers vs year-round athletes.
Instead of trying to resolve those conflicts, why not embrace them? Fifty years ago, baseball was America's national pastime. By embracing significant differences Adidas Originals NMD City Sock 2 PK Grå Sølv Herre Løbesko , the sport can attempt to return to that status.
