Former Chelsea forward Adrian Mutu has become Indian Super League club Pune City's new marquee signing after agreeing to join for the upcoming 2015 season.
The Romanian had a short spell at Chelsea where he scored 10 goals in 38 games, but his time ended in shame after he was dismissed following the failing of a drugs test and breaching the club's zero tolerance drugs policy.
Since then he has played for five other sides - Juventus and Fiorentina among them - and now, at the age of 36, finds himself at FC Pune City.
