Na­tional team banks on Ger­man coach for suc­cess, again

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Eleven years af­ter Otto Re­hhagel led Greece’s soc­cer team to vic­tory in the Euro­pean Cham­pi­onships, Greek of­fi­cials have again put their faith in a Ger­man coach. The Hel­lenic Foot­ball Fed­er­a­tion un­veiled Michael Sk­ibbe as the new man­ager yes­ter­day. Sk­ibbe will be the fifth man to coach Greece in just over a year, fol­low­ing the de­par­ture of Fer­nando San­tos last sum­mer, which led to a pe­riod of in­sta­bil­ity that saw the na­tional side fail to qual­ify for Euro 2016. Sk­ibbe, 50, has coached clubs in Ger­many and Turkey, in­clud­ing Borus­sia Dort­mund and Galatasaray.
