Alfred Schreuder in conversation with Greek top club Olympiakos | Dutch football

Alfred Schreuder (50) is in the picture to become a trainer of the Greek top club Olympiakos. The former Ajax coach is already in Athens to hold talks with the club.

If Schreuder actually starts working at Olympiacos, it will mean a lightning-fast new challenge for the Barnevelder. At the end of January, Schreuder was fired from Ajax after a series of poor results, where he had only been employed since the beginning of this season. His name was also circulated in February for the coaching position at the English club Leeds United, but it did not come from an employment contract.

A tough job would await him in Greece. The record champion is having a mediocre season and seems to have dropped out of the title fight, partly due to three defeats in the last three matches.

For Schreuder, Olympiacos would be his fourth club as head coach. Schreuder previously worked for 1899 Hoffenheim, Club Brugge and Ajax and was assistant coach to Ronald Koeman at FC Barcelona.
