GARY J WHITE – SHANGHAI SHENXIN FC
As the only British coach in top level Chinese football, Gary offers a perfect fit for British brands wanting to promote themselves to the Chinese football community right across China; as well as acting as perfect brand ambassador across Asia.
The FA has said Gary is one of the most forward thinking managers and player development coaches in football - truly a different class. He is recognised by FIFA, AFC, CONCACAF and world media as an expert coaching analyst, instructor and technical study group member at elite international competitions.
His qualifications include: The FA - Professional Award / UEFA Pro License (one of only 16 in the world to pass this new Elite coaching license); the Japan FA S Pro License; and the US Soccer A License.
In 2016 Shanghai Shenxin play in China League 1 (the feeder to the Chinese Super League).
The league covers 16 clubs from 13 Chinese cities, including: Beijing (2 clubs); Shanghai; Dalian (2 clubs); Shaoxing; Hohhot; Qingdao; Urumqi; Tianjin; Wuhan; Shenzhen; Guiyang; Yiyang; Meizhou.
The league also has other famous footballing icons who manage teams including: Clarence Seedorf (Shenzhen); Fabio Cannavaro (Tianjin), Ciro Ferrara (Wuhan Zall) - so is hot news.
