Greece are looking for a new coach after the Hellenic Football Federation (EPO) decided to accept the resignation of Sergio Markarián, who originally stepped down on 21 July.

The Uruguayan originally stepped down on 21 July, but reports suggested that EPO president Giorgos Girtzikis would try to persuade him to stay on. "I ask Greek fans for their forgiveness, because our results were not ones we wanted," Markarián explained at the time, having overseen a 0-0 draw with Hungary and a 2-1 loss in the Faroe Islands in his two European Qualifiers after replacing Claudio Ranieri in February.

The EPO are now searching for the 70-year-old's replacement, who will lead Greece through the preliminaries for the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Current Under-21 coach Kostas Tsanas, whose contract has been extended, will take the senior reigns for the Ethniki's upcoming fixtures in UEFA EURO 2016 qualifying Group F. Bottom with just two points from six games, Greece host Finland on 4 September before travelling to Bucharest to face Romania three days later.
