Former Fulham boss Chris Coleman is back in management – having agreed to take charge of Greek Super League strugglers Atromitos Athens until the end of the season.

Coleman, who famously guided Wales to the semi finals of Euro 2016, said: “I am happy and excited about this deal. It’s a new chapter, a new challenge. There was interest 10 years ago, but some things are also a matter of timing and now was the time.”

Atromitos are thirteenth in the 14-team Super League with nine points from fifteen games. Coleman is set to arrive in Greece on Sunday alongside his long-time assistant, former Fulham defender Kit Symons, who will remain in his role with the Welsh national side.

Atromitos are currently fighting to stay in the Super League where they sit in 13th place in the 14-team championship with just nine points after 15 matches.

Coleman is expected to arrive on Sunday in Greece together with his assistant Kit Symons, who will remain as assistant coach of the Welsh national side. The new management team’s first game is scheduled to be at Giannina on Sunday 16 January.
