German football coaches are expected to take up new jobs to train Chinese students, after the two nations entered into a comprehensive football partnership on Friday.

China’s Ministry of Education and German Football Association have signed an agreement to team up on football training in schools, which will give German coaches more opportunities to share their experience with young Chinese people.


China expected that the agreement will help improve the populous country’s level of football participation in schools and gradually, its performance in the world.

Visiting Chinese Vice-Premier Liu Yandong was at the signing ceremony, held at the German Chancellery building in Berlin before Liu met German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Friday.

Liu said football cooperation is the new front of Sino-German cooperation, in which Germany has tremendous experience to share.
