Former England international Alan Mullery has joined Conference club Crawley Town in a consultancy capacity.
Mullery, 63, who has managed Crawley's neighbours Brighton, will attend matches, training and perform scouting duties to help out boss Francis Vines.
"Alan is not taking anyone's job. He is not a replacement to Francis Vines," Crawley's general manager Paul Hobbs told the Crawley Observer.
"He is a consultant brought in to help bring the club up to a higher level."
Mullery, who captained Tottenham after starting his playing career with Fulham, was capped 35 times in England's midfield.
After retiring as a player he managed Brighton, leading them up to Division One during his first spell in 1979, Charlton, Crystal Palace, QPR and Barnet.
