Former England's manager Sven-Goran Eriksson gets his new uniform during a news conference by Chinese Super League (CSL) club Shanghai East Asia, in Shanghai, on November 18, 2014China's football season kicks off this week with hopes of a resurgence for the beautiful game after former England boss Sven-Goran Eriksson and rookie coach Fabio Cannavaro put the league among the world's biggest spenders. Chinese Super League (CSL) clubs spent 122.2 million euros ($165 million) during the recently closed winter transfer window, almost double last year's figure, second only to the English Premier League (186.8 million euros) and ahead of Italy's Serie A, according to statistics from German website transfermarkt. Socceroo Tim Cahill, once of Everton, is the star name among the 47 foreign imports -- including many Brazilians -- who will double the number of overseas players in the competition. Chinese President Xi Jinping -- who state media describe as an "avid" fan -- backed a "football reform plan" last week.

China has lowered its 2015 economic growth target to "approximately seven percent", as authorities seek a more sustainable path for the world's second-largest economy after its decades-long boomChina lowered its 2015 economic growth target to "approximately seven percent" Thursday, scaling down expectations in the face of "formidable" difficulties for the world's second-largest economy after its decades-long boom. The figure announced by Premier Li Keqiang is the lowest since a similar goal in 2004 and comes after China's gross domestic product (GDP) expanded 7.4 percent in 2014, the slowest pace in 24 years. Last year's target was "about 7.5 percent". Beijing also reduced multiple other targets including trade growth and inflation.
