Michael Skibbe confident on Club getting back in form

Michael Skibbe reckons the Sky-blue white can’t take as long to come to full flow as they took during the first game of their OZ visit in which they got defeated by one goal by the hosts.

The coach, a native of West Germany, has called for more rush from his players from first minute itself as the action shifts to Melbourne.

The fans are expecting Michael Skibbe to bring as much success

The fans are expecting Michael Skibbe to bring as much success to Greece as his compatriot Otto Rehhagel did.

Rehhagel proved to be one of the best coaches in the history of Greece soccer before quitting in 2010.

He worked with the national side for a period of almost 10 years and unearthed many young talents and not only did he unearth them; but, developed them quite well too.

There would be a lot of Greek players who would say that they owe their careers to that legendary coach.

But, since the time Rehhagel left, the Greek association has struggled to find another one like him.
