Henk ten Cate [lnts.com.cn]

Shandong Luneng has signed 57-year-old Dutchman Henk ten Cate as its new coach and he will train the team from Jan. 6, 2012, according to the official website of Luneng Taishan Football Club.

The Dutch manager has an impressive resume in coaching. He was the assistant of Frank Rijkaard at Barcelona that guided the team to a Champions League Trophy and La Liga title. The Dutchman trained several football talents there.

He then served as manager of Ajax until October 2007, when he was released by mutual consent, allowing him to begin talks with Chelsea.

Ten Cate joined the London club as assistant manager, but was sacked in May 2008. He later signed a two-year deal with Greek side Panathinaikos, and guided it to the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League.

Many pundits speculate ten Cate's annual salary could amount to around 1.2 million euros.
