According to the meeting records of August 7 in Greek Football Federation Board of Directors, Giorgos Karagounis was fired by the Greek national team becues of his inappropriate behaviour and attitude. In Record no 47, it is mentioned that Markarian and his assistant manager resigned but the president did not accept the resignation in the first place. Federation's president Giorgos Gkirtzikis suggested to thank Markarian for clarifying the case for the Greek national team (meaning Karagounis dismissal maybe?).
It also mentioned that manager Kostenouglou had to remain till the end of his contract without being active though. The medical staff will remain iin order for the team to start from zero. But after members' discuss, Kostenoglou was released too.
President Gkirtzikis suggested Kostas Tsanas for manager and Super League chairman Giorgos Mporovilos wanted Tsanas to remain permanently.
The Federation president referred to Ranieri's case mentioning that since he signed a contract with Lester, the Federation could not give him the compensation and even retrieve the money they gave to the Italian manager.
About Referees, mrs Gkagkatsi and Kontonis
According to the same record, many mebers of the Federations Board of directors disagreed with the refereeing boards that Central Referee Committee president Giorgos Karamelidis had approved.
During the meeting letter of the law-drafting committee set up by Stavros Kontonis for the new sports law was presented that required from the Federation to deposit their opinions.
The president pointed out that they need to refer to the statuses and regulations of the Federation and that is unacceptable from the Deputy Minister not to include in legislative drafting Football Federation and will have an answer by FIFA and UEFA at once. He added that it is not possible to call on UEFA and surpass the Federation and that will take a response. Therefore, a letter will be sent to Mr. Perrakis that says that the positions and views of the Federation are recorded in the statuses and regulations of the Federation and the respective statuses of FIFA and UEFA.
During the meeting the dismissals of Theodoros Kouris, Akrivi Dendrinou and Filippos Vourliotis were decided. Mrs Akrivi Dendrinou is Vasilis Gkagkatsis wife.
