As reported on the club’s official website, Míchel has become Olympiacos’ new head coach.
Yesterday it was communicated that the Spaniard travelled to Greece to finalise the necessary paperwork before the announcement could be made official.
Olympiacos chose to part ways compatriot Carlos Corberán, who only managed to win two games out of a possible of five in the Super League this season. The Greek champions find themselves fifth in the standings, seven points below league leaders Panathinaikos.
The Greek side will not be unfamiliar territory for Míchel, having already managed Olympiacos between 2013 and 2015. During his first spell with the club, he won the Greek Super League twice and the Greek Super League once.
This will be 59-year-old’s first club following his dismissal from Getafe in October 2021 after only picking up one point in the first eight games of the 2021-2022 La Liga season.
The Real Madrid legend will have the opportunity to work with former Los Blancos players Marcelo and James Rodríguez.
