The coaching vacancy of Greece’s national soccer team is set to be filled just days after the squad’s previous coach was ousted. Following the decision of the Hellenic Football Federation (EPO) to terminate Michael Skibbe’s contract, Angelos Anastasiades is set to sign a contract to head the team.
Anastasiades’ new contract is conditional on the team’s success in upcoming competition. He is expected to coach Greece’s national squad until at least December 2019. However, if the Greek national team qualifies for the Euro 2020 tournament, Anastasiades will remain at the helm the Greek team for an additional year.
Notably, Anastasiades is the team’s first permanent coach of Greek descent since Vassilis Daniel’s tenure with the team, which ended in 2001.
