Zico appointed Olympiacos coach

Zico has been appointed as new Olympiacos coach, days after being sacked from CSKA Moscow.

Olympiacos fired Temuri Ketsbaia yesterday, despite an impressive start to the domestic campaign where they have collected seven points from a possible nine and are yet to concede a goal.

The Greek outfit announced the appointment of Zico during their Champions League opener against AZ Alkmaar.

The Brazil legend left CSKA, who he led to the Russian Cup and Super Cup, five days ago by mutual consent and was replaced by Juande Ramos.
