Indian Super League side FC Pune City have appointed former England international David Platt as their new manager.
The 48-year-old has been out of work since leaving his position as Manchester City assistant coach in May 2013 following the departure of Roberto Mancini.
Platt has taken up his first club management role since his two-year stint at Nottingham Forest between 1999 and 2001.
"I think David will have a very strong impact on Indian football especially at the stage of growth it is in. I'm sure the players and the fans will love him," Pune co-owner Gaurav Modwell told Sky Sports News.
"Once we got into dialogue with David it became apparent to us he was the guy we'd like to go for. When we got into conversations beyond his experience and credentials we could see his desire to make a significant contribution to the football revolution that is happening in this country.
"He's been there, he's done it and he's won things. He's not just taking this role for the heck of it and he's not looking at this from a monetary point of view or in terms of a new life experience."
Platt's last job in management was with the England Under-21s between 2001 and 2004.
