Claudio Ranieri has been appointed as the new coach of Greece, the Greek Football Federation has announced.

The 62-year-old Italian takes over from Fernando Santos after his contract expired following the World Cup, where he guided Greece to the last 16.

Ranieri has been handed a two-year deal and his main focus will now be steering Greece to Euro 2016.

"Claudio Ranieri signed a two-year contract with the Greek Football Federation and is the new coach of the national team," read a statement on the federation's website.

"The Italian coach, with service at many major European clubs, is expected to lead our group to new successes with Euro 2016 on the horizon."
