Greece sack coach Michael Skibbe after poor Nations League run

Greece have sacked coach Michael Skibbe after a disappointing run in the Nations League, the country's Football Association (EPO) said on Thursday.

The EPO has appointed 65-year-old Angelos Anastasiadis as his successor, the first Greek coach for the national team who is not an interim appointment in 17 years.

Skibbe, from Germany, took over in 2015 after the 2004 European champions' failure to qualify for Euro 2016, and last year signed a contract extension to include Euro 2020 if they qualified.

Greece lifts suspension on football league after violence concerns

PAOK chairman Ivan Savvidis still faces action for taking to the pitch with a gun.

The Greek government has lifted its suspension of the country's football league after saying it received a commitment from clubs to reform rules aimed at combating violence.

League organisers say games will restart on Saturday with additional midweek matches to be planned to compensate for the two-week suspension.

Huebel met government and league officials...

Greece to renew coach Michael Skibbe's deal despite World Cup failure

Michael Skibbe was appointed by Greece in 2015.

The Greek football federation has said it will renew national coach Michael Skibbe's contract for another two years despite failure to qualify for the World Cup.

Greece were eliminated by Croatia in a qualification playoff earlier this month.

But the federation said Skibbe would be arriving in Athens to sign a new contract on Thursday.

The 52-year-old German took over in 2015 after Greece's wretched qualifying campaign for the 2016 European Championship, during which they were beaten home and away...
