Santos to succeed Rehhagel for Greece

The Greek Football Federation have confirmed Fernando Santos is to succeed Otto Rehhagel as national team coach.

Rehhagel stood down following Greece's elimination from the World Cup at the group stage after guiding the country to an unprecedented period of success in his nine-year reign, highlighted by their astonishing title success at Euro 2004.

Santos, 55, is well established in Greek football having had coaching stints at Panathinaikos, PAOK Salonika and AEK Athens in the last decade.

He resigned from PAOK in May after leading the club to a place in next season's Champions League qualifying rounds.

He has signed a two-year deal to coach Greece and will be presented to the media on Friday.
