Robbie Keane is making his first foray into management in his illustrious career when he takes charge of Indian Super League club ATK.
Our former striker will be in temporary charge for the game on Sunday against NorthEast United in a player-manager role.
Robbie has earned his UEFA A license and is in a great run of form on the pitch too scoring five goals in his last six games for the Kolkata-based club, and is playing alongside former Newcastle defender Ryan Taylor and ex-Burnley forward Martin Paterson.
ATK were managed by our former striker Teddy Sheringham, but he was sacked after winning just three games out of ten and he was subsequently replaced by former Sheffield Wednesday defender Ashley Westwood, but he has now departed too after ATK missed out on a play-off spot for the first time in four seasons.
Keane arrived in India with a stellar repuatation, having represented no fewer than eight English clubs and having scored 126 goals in the Premier League.
