Former Manchester United forward Teddy Sheringham has been appointed as the head coach of Atletico de Kolkata for the upcoming season of the Indian Super League (ISL).
The 51-year-old has replaced Spaniard Jose Francisco Molina, who led the club to their second title last year, sealing a win against Kerala Blasters via penalties.
Sheringham, who won three Premier League titles and the Champions League with United, lasted less than a year in his first stint as manager, with League Two side Stevenage before leaving the club in February 2016.
