Stojkovic hired to lead Chinese team


Former Nagoya Grampus coach Dragan Stojkovic will manage Guangzhou R&F, the Chinese Super League club announced on Tuesday.

Stojkovic’s contract runs to 2017. The former Yugoslavia international coached Nagoya for six seasons until 2013, winning the J. League title in 2010.

The Paris-based Stojkovic had been angling for a job in Europe since leaving Grampus, the only team he has managed.
