“In my opinion coaching Greek national team is something very interesting and a big challenge for everyone. I gave it a thought, but it was very difficult for me to coach Greece, given my past in Olympiakos”, he said after meeting Karagounis in Madrid. 

But what about his life besides football? “I'm learning foreign languages”, Michel says, “I've already started Italian and German lessons and I try to improve my English. I want to be ready for any proposal”. 

But Michel's favorite “activity” now that he has more free time, is playing with his grandson: “I love spending time with him. Nicolas in now one year old- a beautiful age!”, the Spaniard coach said.
