Teddy Sheringham takes over Indian Super League side Atletico de Kolkata
Former Manchester United and England striker Teddy Sheringham has been appointed as head coach of Indian Super League side Atletico de Kolkata.
The 51-year-old Champions League winner, who also played for Tottenham and Nottingham Forest, has managed Stevenage and takes over at the reigning ISL champions, who also won the title in 2014.
The Indian club made the announcement on their Twitter feed with a photo of Sheringham and a short statement which read: "We give you our head coach for the 4th edition of the @IndSuperLeague, Teddy Sheringham!"
Since the competition's formation three years ago Kolkata have won two of three titles.
Sheringham replaces Jose Francisco Molina who led Kolkata to the 2016 title.
Elsewhere, former United coach Rene Meulensteen has taken over at Kerala Blasters.
And former Reading manager Steve Coppell has taken charge at Jamshedpur after leading Kerala Blasters to the ISL Final last season.
Last week Chennaiyin FC appointed John Gregory to succeed Italian Marco Materazzi, who guided them to the title in the 2015 season.
The Indian Super League season begins on Oct. 1 as an expanded 10-team league following the addition of two new teams.
