Robbie Keane will experience life in the managerial hot seat for the first time in his illustrious career when he takes charge of Indian Super League club ATK.
The former Spurs striker will be in temporary charge for the game on Sunday against NorthEast United in a player-manager role.
The Irishman has earned his UEFA A license and is in a great run of form on the pitch too.
Keane has scored 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 former Manchester United striker Teddy Sheringham , but he was sacked after winning just three games out of ten.
He was 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 .
