Report: Ranieri set for Greece job

Claudio Ranieri is on the verge of becoming the new man in charge of the Greece national team.

Current incumbent Fernando Santos is set to leave after their World Cup campaign this summer, and Sport24 insist that a deal with the Italian tactician has already been agreed.

The Hellenic Association will pay the 62-year-old a reported €800,000 per season for two years, with the aim of qualifying for the European Championships in France in 2016.

Ranieri was sacked by Monaco at the end of last term, despite guiding the principality outfit to second place in Ligue 1.

Greece have previously been linked with a move for Massimiliano Allegri, but it seems as if Ranieri is their chosen one.
