The Italian boasts a stunning CV of Serie A, La Liga and Champions League success, although the 70-year-old had been out the dug-out since leaving his position in charge of Russia two years ago.

Jiangsu are currently struggling near the bottom of the CSL and were eliminated by Shanghai SIPG in the first knockout stage of the AFC Champions League.

Jiangsu only ranked 15th in the CSL table after 12 rounds, second from the bottom and struggling to break away from the relegation zone.

Under Choi's guidance, Jiangsu finished in the second place thrice in 2016 CSL, CFA Cup and 2017 CFA Super Cup.

Nearly half way into the season, four CSL clubs have their head coaches changed since May, including Tianjin Teda's Jaime Pacheco, Changchun Yatai's Lee Jang-Soo, Guizhou Hengfeng Zhicheng's Li Bin and Jiangsu's Choi.

CSL has been among world leading soccer league in drawing top coaches with Felipe Scolari in Guangzhou Evergrande, Manuel Luis Pellegrini in Hebei China Fortune, Felix Magath in Shandong Luneng and Villas-Boas in Shanghai SIPG.
