A Greek Euro champion in the A-League? It’s more than likely, if recent headlines from Greece were to be taken to heart.
More specifically, the articles state that the “colossus” is close to putting pen-to-paper on a deal that will see him coaching an A-League club, after an offer was made to him for over $1 million per season, including many target achieving bonuses, in order to take charge.
It remains unknown which club it will be though, as the reports have yet to name where the offer came from. It also raises a number of questions in regards to which club is able to afford such a hefty price, considering the dire situation the league is currently in.
Should the rumours come to pass, this would be the first time that the Greek manager has coached out of the country, having already been on the bench of AEK Athens, Atromitos and Panetolikos.
GIANNOU BACK TO THE A-LEAGUE?
Meanwhile, another well-known Greek-Aussie is also searching for the next place to continue his career and could make the move down under.
Socceroo Apostolos Giannou has been on the receiving end of many offers after his contract with AEK Larnaca expired and could be enticed to return home if there’s no interest shown towards him from any Greek or Cypriot sides.
The 30-year-old is being considered as a potential target for quite a few Super League clubs, while there is also a rumoured proposal from a Cypriot club and his name will definitely be in many headlines in the days to come.
MAJOK SIGNS WITH CYPRIOT SECOND DIVISION CLUB PAEEK
At the same time, PAEEK have announced the signing of former Western Sydney Wanderers winger Abraham Majok.
Both club and player agreed on all terms and he will now help the club in their attempt to reach the higher levels of Cypriot football.
Majok is one of the greater signings for the Cypriots, having played for the Olyroos a total of 2 times, scoring twice on his debut.
He has also recorded 30 appearances in the A-League and has played in the AFC Champions League.
