Panathinaikos coach gets sack

Former Spanish soccer international Victor Mu-noz has been sacked as coach of Panathinaikos, according to sources within the club. An official announcement is expected in the next two weeks although the news was widely reported by Greek media yesterday. Munoz only took over at the club in October 2006 but an indifferent season in which Panathinaikos finished a distant third in the Super League and were defeated in the Greek Cup final by unfancied Larissa has cost him his job. According to club sources the former Sporting Lisbon boss Jose Peseira will be named as coach, the sixth at Panathinaikos since they won the domestic league and cup double three years ago.(Reuters)
