A day after the shock­ing 1-0 Euro 2016 qual­i­fy­ing de­feat to the Faroe Is­lands in Pi­raeus, Clau­dio Ranieri was sacked as Greece’s na­tional coach on Satur­day.

The Hel­lenic Foot­ball Fed­er­a­tion (EPO) said the Ital­ian would re­main at the helm for the friendly match against Ser­bia to­mor­row. A deal on the Ital­ian’s com­pen­sa­tion – who had signed a two-year, 1.6-mil­lion-euro con­tract – has been reached, re­ports said.

“Fol­low­ing [Fri­day’s] dev­as­tat­ing re­sult for the na­tional team, I take full re­spon­si­bil­ity for the un­for­tu­nate choice of man­ager,” EPO chief Gior­gos Sar­ris said on Satur­day. Ranieri coached Greece to three de­feats and one draw in four games this fall.
