Italian centre-back Paolo Cannavaro who has spent his whole career in Italy looks set to retire and join his older brother Fabio Cannavaro in to coaching in China. Fabio the much decorated Italian star is currently the manager of Guangzhou Evergrande, and is excited to have his son on board it is reported.
The father of the pair added on Italian radio Radio Marte, “It was a choice he evaluated well,”
“Paolo is 37 years old. At this age, he can play a little. But he has to make a choice
about what he would do after retiring from playing football. So he chose very well in starting immediately alongside Fabio. We will see how this adventure will go.”
If Paolo decides to move to China, it will be the first time the brothers have been at the same club since they played together at Parma 16 years ago.
Fabio Cannavaro is in his second spell with Guangzhou Evergrande as coach, succeeding Luiz Felipe Scolari at the end of the last Chinese Super League season in November.
