Anthony Pulis has been announced as the head coach of USL club Saint Louis FC, moving across from his manager's role at Orlando City B.

The 33-year-old was a journeyman in English football, and played for the likes of Stoke, Plymouth, Grimsby and Stockport.

Pulis Jr. then moved to Orlando as a player-coach for three years before they became an MLS team.

“Fans can expect exciting soccer,” Pulis told Saint Louis' official website following his appointment.

“I want my teams to play with energy and intensity. I want my teams to pass the ball, but do so with a purpose to get forward and score goals."

Like father... unlike son, then.
