level 2
 没来就是谣言[1],来了就不是谣言--恒大(Guangzhou Hengda)老板许家印(Xu Jiayin)曾用这样一句话,对邀请里皮(Marcelo Lippi)执教[2]一事"辟谣[3]"。但现在,"谣言"变成了现实:大名鼎[4]的前世界杯(World Cup)冠军[5]教练[6]里皮,真的来了。

里皮及其教练组团队[7]昨天已经飞抵广州(Guangzhou),并在恒大俱乐部[8]召开的新闻发布会[9]上公开亮相[10]。

里皮曾率领[11]意大利(Italy)队在2006年德国(Germany)世界杯夺冠,尤文图斯(Juventus)以及国际米兰(Inter Milan)队主教练。在里皮的指挥下,斑马('Zebra', the nickname of Juventus)军团夺得了5次意甲冠军(Italian championships)、一次欧洲冠军杯(European Champions League championship)冠军。

里皮还将带来4名助手[12],据悉,恒大为整个教练团队开出的薪酬[13]在1000万欧元,这是任何人都难以拒绝的价格。恒大花的这笔钱[14],也为中国足球创造了一个新纪[15]。

   Lippi in his first public appearance as the new Guangzhou Hengda coach 

"If it doesn't happen then it's only a rumor, if it does - it is not." The boss of Guangzhou Hengda Xu Jiayin said this phrase in the past, when his invitation for Marcelo Lippi to coach the team was reported as a 'false rumor'. Now, the 'rumor' becomes reality: The reputed former World Cup champion coach, Lippi, is arriving for real.

Lippi and his coaching staff already arrived at Guangzhou yesterday. They made a public appearance at a press conference at the Hengda club.

Lippi led Italy to win the 2006 World Cup in Germany. He was also the head coach of Juventus and Inter Milan. Under the 'command' of Lippi, the 'zebra team' (Juventus) won five Italian championship titles and one European Champions League title.

Lippi brings with him four assistants. It is reported that Hengda pays a total salary of 10 million Euro. Nobody can refuse this amount. This contract is also setting a new record in Chinese football.
