Former Chelsea and Romanian international forward Adrian Mutu has joined FC Pune City as their marquee player for the second season of Indian Super League.
Pune City, managed by the former England captain and Nottingham Forest manager David Platt, have also signed former Tottenham Hotspur and Ivory Coast midfielder Didier Zokora ahead of the new ISL campaign which will begin in October.
“The commitment of the management for having me as a part of the club was one of the primary reasons for me to join,” said Mutu in a club statement.
“This certainly will be one of the biggest challenges of my career and I look forward to it,” he said. “The team has gathered some quality signings from India as well as abroad and excellent backroom staff will make us an exciting side.”
The 36-year-old has been voted Romanian Footballer of the Year four times and scored a national record-equalling 35 goals in 77 caps.
