Scolari set to finish China stint with another title

Luiz Felipe Scolari wants to end his time in China by taking Guangzhou Evergrande to a seventh successive Chinese Super League title.

Scolari is leaving next month, and another title - his third - would be the perfect way to say goodbye. The 2002 World Cup-winning coach arrived in China in June 2015, when the money splurged on high-profile coaches and players in the league was dramatically escalating.

He leaves with the southern China club still at the top. With just three games of the season remaining this season, Guangzhou is six points clear of second-place Shanghai SIPG in second. The title could be delivered as early as Sunday if Guangzhou Evergrande beats Guizhou and Shanghai fails to beat Guangzhou R&F.
