Italian Serie B side Benevento have appointed Fabio Cannavaro as head coach.

Various reports from the media hints that former Real Madrid, Juventus, Inter Milan defender and 2006 World Cup winner will sign a one-and-a-half-year contract with the club.

Cannavaro had taken coaching two years after retiring in 2011, working as an assistant at United Arab Emirates-based side Al-Ahli before he became the head coach at Chinese Super League club Guangzhou and then Saudi Arabia’s Al-Nassr.

The 49-year-old also managed the Chinese national team briefly while at Guangzhou.
