Marco Materazzi has completed his move to the Indian Super League


The former Italy defender Marco Materazzi has joined Chennai Titans in the Indian Super League following in the footsteps of his former national team-mate Alessandro Del Piero, who completed a move to Delhi Dynamos earlier this summer.

The 41-year-old will be the player-manager of the team and is expected to come to India next Thursday to join a training camp in Bangalore. The deal is reported to be worth $1 million.

Materazzi made 301 appearances for Inter Milan during his 10-year stay in the club. A part of the World Cup winning squad in 2006, he had a very eventful final match where he had scored, conceded a penalty and succeeded in getting Zinedine Zidane sent off.
