Greek Boss Michael SkibbeLinked with a Return toEskişehirspor
It appears that the Greece may be in the search for a new manager second, as several rumours have claimed that managerMichael Skibbe will be making a return to Turkish clubEskişehirspor.
Widely known for the in charge of the Turkish clubs and the German outfit,Skibbe has been in charge of the Greek national team since October 2015. It continues to remain as one of the toughest roles in world football largely due to the collapse of the Greek economy. Since then, the Greece FA have struggled to set up some high-profile friendly matches.
Greece have been involved against the likes of Russia and Belarus when it comes to the friendly games. Their poor start to the World Cup 2018 qualification campaign leaves them in the second spot – two points behind table leaders Belgium. However, the biggest worry for the national team will be the potential poaching ofSkibbe.
The 51-year-old may have spent only between January and October 2015 atEskişehirspor, but it seems that he has formed an incredible collection during his time. The spell with Eskişehirspor from January to October 2015 was not the only time he was in charge of the team.
Being charge of the 17 games at Eskişehirspor, Skibbe secured nine wins and suffered only five defeats.“It is an honour to serve Eskişehirspor again.Club president Mesut Hoşcan played a huge role in my return to Eskişehirspor, I came back for him as we did not finish our plans last time around. We need to move up the league table, that is a must but we have the quality and depth to do so, I mean this same team reached the Turkish Cup final last season and we have actually played well this season. Our aim is to do well in the Turkish Cup as well and move up the league standings,” said Skibbe.
