Yanis Varoufakis returned to Parliament on Thursday as an MP rather than a minister and in a brief discussion with journalists expressed frustration about his time in charge of negotiations with lenders.

Varoufakis claimed that German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble has a plan to push Greece out of the eurozone and that he has a strong influence over his counterparts in the Eurogroup, apart from France’s Michel Sapin.

Varoufakis refused to be drawn on the possible outcome of the current negotiations, for which his successor Euclid Tsakalotos is responsible.
