Two-time Indian Super League (ISL) champions Atletico de Kolkata (ATK) on Friday appointed former Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur striker Teddy Sheringham as their new chief coach for the next edition.
Sheringham was part of United's treble winning season in 1998-99.

The exact total is $1.312 million for the 2017-18 season, but Gbinije's contract was only partially guaranteed for $500,000. Gbinije would be eligible for one of those two-way contracts if the team chooses to sign him to such a deal.
He would be replacing Antonio Lopez Habas, the new Pune FC head coach, who helped the Kolkata outfit win the tournament two times in the three editions. Coppell led Kerala Blasters to the final of the ISL last season and left the team at the end of it. Tata Steel, who owns the franchise, also announced the signing of former India player Ishfaq Ahmed as the assistant coach of the franchise. "I am glad to welcome our new Coach Teddy Sheringham to ATK (Altetico de Kolkata) family and strongly believe that it is going to be an enriching experience for him and the boys. Our endeavour to retain expertise and map out a compact team structure has been enhanced with Sheringham joining the team this season", Goenka said.
Sheringham, meanwhile, added: "I am excited to be joining ATK and can't wait to get started. Mr Sanjiv Goenka has told me about the Indian Super League and it seems like a great place to follow your football dreams and ambitions", said Sheringham.
