69 year old Greece boss Otto Rehhagel has admitted that there is a chance he may stand down as coach after Greece defend their European Championship in Austria and Switzerland. Rehhagel said that he had received offers and at his age he did not consider himself too old to carry on coaching.

"At the moment, I am employed by the Greek federation and I am focusing on the Euro tournament.

"Once that is finished, we will see what happens: whether I stay, whether I go, whether they make me a new offer, and whether I accept it," Rehhagel told Sunday's edition of Die Welt.

"There have been approaches from several sources and they have asked me how long I want to stay in Greece, but I don't want to say anymore than that.

"I am certainly old, but I am still wanted by other clubs and I feel in good form."

Rehhagel, who is one of the most successful coaches in German football having won three German titles, three German Cups and the now defunct Cup Winners Cup in 1992 with Werder Bremen, said that he had no regrets over not accepting the offer to succeed Rudy Voller as national coach after Euro 2004.

"I do not regret having turned them down," he said.
