Former Argentina manager Sergio Batista has been appointed head coach of Shanghai Shenhua to replace the sacked Jean Tigana, the big spending Chinese club said in a statement on Wednesday.

Shanghai, who are ninth in the Chinese Super League, fired Frenchman Tigana in April after a poor start to the season, replacing him with interim coach Jean-Florent Ibenge.
