Nigerian international Yakubu Aiyegbeni, has praised the appointment of Sven Goran Eriksson as the new manager of Chinese outfit Guangzhou R&F.

“I am excited to work with him again. I worked under him at Leicester City and Sven is one of the best managers in football,” Yakubu told

“It is exciting news for Chinese football and now Guangzhou R&F can win trophies” he added.

“Just imagine the derby game against Lippi; the fans and team are going to be happy watching some interesting football in that fixture,” Yakubu said.
