Betting company Coral has announced the appointment of former England, Chelsea and Man Utd midfielder Ray Wilkins as director of football.

Wilkins said: “I’m delighted to be joining Coral as their first director of football. A major part of my initial role is going to be to make sure the best people move to Coral this January and I’m hoping my years of experience in professional football will be able to help with this.

“The offer from Coral is second to none, providing customers with more top prices than any other high street bookmaker, so I want to do all I can to help people realise the best offer is here and by signing to Coral this January they really will be moving for the money.”

Olly Raeburn, retail marketing director at Coral, said: “We are extremely pleased to be appointing Ray Wilkins to the position of director of football. There’s nobody more experienced than Ray when it comes to attracting the best talent to a football team, and with more top prices on offer at Coral than anywhere else on the high street, it made sense for us to get a top man on the job of signing new customers for us as the transfer window draws to a close.”

Starting today, Wilkins will be signing people looking to 'move for the money' to Coral.
