Rehhagel puts exit in perspective

Published Add your comment

Coach Otto Rehhagel attempted to put Greece´s elimination from Euro 2008 into perspective and finished with a round of applause from journalists for a speech straight out of Jose Mourinho´s textbook.

Russia ended the hopes of the holders making history and defending the title for the first time in the history of the tournament, with Konstantin Zyryanov grabbing the winner in a 1-0 win at Salzburg´s Stadion Wals-Siezenheim.

"I think the Acropolis has been around for several thousand years, and we won´t be around for that long - that keeps it in perspective," the German said.
