Former Fulham and Tottenham manager Martin Jol is in talks with the Greek Football Association about taking over as the country's new coach.

Incumbent Fernando Santos is leaving his role as Greece coach following this summer's World Cup and the hunt is on for the Portuguese's replacement.

According to the Algemeen Dagblad, Jol has flown to Athens for talks with the Greek FA, although financial concerns are threatening to scupper any deal.

Jol is thought to want a minimum salary of €1m, while the Greek FA is reluctant to go above €700,000.


Jol however is not the only man in the frame to become the new Greece coach.

Italian Marco Tardelli, mooted in some quarters as the Greeks' preferred choice, is in the picture.

Other contenders include Jose Antonio Camacho and current Eintracht Frankfurt coach Armin Veh.
