Former Black Stars coach Avram Grant has been named head coach of Indian top-flight side North East United FC.

A former Chelsea trainer, Grant had been without a job since February 2017, when his contract with Ghana expired.

North East African United FC confirmed Grant’s appointment via their official Twitter handle.

 

Following his appointment, he said: “I agreed to the challenge and am hitting the ground running.

“India is a new and exciting environment for football and look forward to the pace of the league.

“I have confidence in the club and we will do all we can to take the club forward.”


Avram Grant was Black Stars coach for two years. He masterminded the senior national team's second place finish at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations tournament.
