Punjab FC rope in former Crystal Palace coach


Curtis Fleming is set for his debut on Indian soil in the managerial role. He is set to join
the I league side Punjab FC as the head coach for the upcoming I League season.
The 51 year old coach has a bag full of experience with some great teams such as
Crystal Palace and Queens Park Rangers. He started his coaching career as an interim
manager of Crystal Palace in 2012. After spending four months with the Eagles, he
moved to Bolton Wanderers as the manager.

He then started his venture as an assistant manager for Hartlepool United and Queens
Park Rangers respectively, In 2018, he joined Middlesbrough and spent a year with the
Boros before leaving the club.
Talking about his career as a professional football player he was a Right Back and
spent the best time of his career at Riverside Stadium. He made around 300
appearances for Boro and won 3 promotions with them. He was also a key member of
the squad which reached the league cup finals twice. In 1997, he helped Middlesbrough reach the FA Cup final but succumbed to a defeat against Chelsea in the title-decider.

His journey as a coach has been full of different clubs and experience but this is his first time taking this job outside the British Isle it would be great to see what all changes and improvements he can make to this squad of Punjab FC. His motive would be to win the I League in the coming season with the team.
Punjab FC is now owned by RoundGlass Sports after taking over by Mr. Ranjit Bajaj,
the squad is full of elite players who can go well with the playing style of the 51 year old Irish man.
