A statement from the Chinese Football Association has confirmed that Jose Antonio Camacho has been sacked as manager of the national team after two years in charge.
The former Spain coach, who suffered an early exit in World Cup qualifying last year, has lost 11 of his 20 matches in charge of the side.
"Having consulted with related parties and informed coach Camacho, the authority made a primary decision of terminating the cooperation with the Spaniard," read the statement.
"Details are yet to be negotiated with Camacho. The seeking for his successor has been initiated."
Camacho has also managed Real Madrid.
