Greek club Larissa have announced their intention to take legal action against the Football Association of Wales over the appointment of Chris Coleman as Wales manager.

Coleman was unveiled as the successor to his former Wales team-mate Gary Speed at a press conference in Cardiff on Thursday, having left his role with Larissa last week, citing the Greek club's financial problems as the reason for his departure.

But within hours of the FAW confirming Coleman's appointment, with the 41-year-old being handed a contract through to the end of Wales' World Cup qualifying campaign, Larissa posted a statement on their website stating that the former Fulham manager remained under contract with them, and a Larissa spokesman told BBC Sport: "We have started legal claim compensation from the Welsh FA."
