After careful consideration, I have taken the decision to resign with immediate effect.
I would like to thank the President Mr Wu Xiaohui and the Chairman Mr Zhou Jun for their support and the opportunity to coach Shanghai Shenhua and the possibility of working in China, which has been a wonderful experience.
Also I would like to thank my staff, players and everyone related to the club and of course the fans for their incredible support.
I wish the club every success in the future, which will hopefully include reaching the FA Cup Final, which was one of our objectives for this year.
Thanks and all the best,
