Former Chinese national team captain and Crystal Palace defender Fan Zhiyi has joined Hong Kong side Buler Rangers as a player-coach, it was reported yesterday.


'If the team needs me as a coach, I'll try to do a better job in a coaching position. If the team needs me on the pitch, I'll be there, be it 10 minutes or 20 minutes,' Fan said in footage aired on Cable TV.


The 35-year-old Fan had a previous stint as player-coach with the team in 2003.


He joins Buler Rangers from Chinese club Shanghai Zobon.
