Former Manchester City and Sunderland manager Peter Reid is back in football after agreeing to join the coaching staff at Bolton.

The 59-year-old started his playing career at Wanderers in the 1970s, going on to make 257 appearances before joining Everton, and he has returned to the Sky Bet Championship club to assist new interim manager Jimmy Phillips.

Reid last managed in England with Plymouth in 2011 and most recently coached Indian club Mumbai City in 2014.

"We are delighted that Peter has agreed to come in and be part of the team for the rest of the season," chief executive Dean Holdsworth told the club's official website.

"Peter's experience, standards, drive and personality will without doubt give the club a lift."
