Henan Jianye have appointed South Korean Chang Woe-Ryong as new head coach, the club announced on Thursday.

Chang Woe-Ryong has experience of coaching in China, including spells with Qingdao Jonoon, Dalian Aerbin and Chongqing Lifan.

Henan Jianye have only one win after seven rounds of Chinese Super League this season, which lead to the departure of former coach Dragan Talajic.

The Croatian, who took the reins last December,  was fired by Henan Jianye last week following a three-game losing run.

“We hope Chang can inspire the team to fight and bring new ideas to lead the team of trouble,” the club said in a statement, as quoted by Xinhua News.

Jianye now has four points to stand 14th in the 16-team top league.
