Another Old Trafford veteran, former assistant coach Rene Meulensteen, is Kerala’s new boss, while Berbatov’s old Spurs strike partner Robbie Keane recently joined Atletico de Kolkata.

The 36-year-old, who also starred for Monaco, Bayer Leverkusen and Fulham, had been without a club since leaving PAOK Thessaloniki a year ago.

The ISL, which will be in its fourth season, will grow to 10 teams this year.
