"The club has a fantastic stadium with great facilities and I am very much looking forward to working with the players."

Chairman Milan Mandaric added: "I am delighted to acquire a manager of such great calibre.

"Paulo has an excellent reputation both as a player and now as a manager - I believe that he is the right man to take our club forward.

"I admire his style of football and I am sure all supporters will join me in looking ahead to the new season."
