Former Reading and Crystal Palace manager Steve Coppell has returned to football at Crawley Town.

The ex-Manchester United winger is the Red Devils' new technical director.

The move comes after Steve Evans left his job as manager of the League Two to take over the same role at Rotherham.

A Crawley statement said: "Steve will oversee all aspects of the club's football operations.

"Craig Brewster will remain as caretaker manager."

Coppell has had stints as manager of clubs including Manchester City, Crystal Palace and most recently Bristol City.
