Former Villarreal Coach Ernesto Valverde Agrees To Olympiacos Return - Report

The Τhrylos favourite looks set to return...

In the wake of being sacked in January after a poor season at Spanish Primera Division outfit Villarreal, Spanish coach Ernesto Valverde has agreed to return to Greek titans Olympiacos, according to reports from Athens.

Novasport FM reports that the 46-year-old will travel at some point within the next week to sign a contract with the club that he led to the Greek league title and cup double just a year ago.

The radio station went on to speculate that the deal would be for a single season with the option to extend, earning Valverde up to €1.5 million for a year's work. 

The news of Valverde's acquisition comes just a day after Ewald Lienen received his marching orders by the club, having failed to overcome Israeli side Maccabi Tel Aviv in the Europa League.
