Former Ghana coach Avram Grant has taken up the role of technical advisor at Indian Super League side North East United.
Grant had been unattached since leaving the Black Stars job after the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.
The former Chelsea and West Ham trainer has now ended his sabbatical by accepting an offer from long-time friend and club owner John Abraham.

Grant is stepping in to advice NorthEast United FC for the remainder of the fourth season of the Indian Super League.
He is expected to help bring the side’s league campaign back on track. They are languishing in the second-last spot on the table.
Speaking on his appointment, the Israeli said: “I agreed to the challenge and I am hitting the ground running.
“India is a new and exciting environment for football and I 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.”
The current Indian league ends in three months.
