Teddy Sheringham appointed manager of Atletico de Kolkata

Former Manchester United and Tottenham striker Teddy Sheringham has been appointed manager of Atletico de Kolkata.

Sheringham, 51, replaced Spaniard Jose Francisco Molina, who led ATK to their second title in three years in his only season as coach.

The Kolkata-based side, owned by a consortium including Spanish club Atletico Madrid and former India cricket captain Sourav Ganguly, also won the inaugural edition in 2014.

Sheringham, who won three Premier League titles and the Champions League with United, most recently managed League Two side Stevenage.

The Jamshedpur Football Club, one of the two new entrants and owned by Tata Steel, have named another former England and Manchester United player, Steve Coppell, as their manager for the upcoming season.
