ATHENS, Greece (AP) - Olympiakos has hired former Portugal coach Paulo Bento to replace Spaniard Victor Sanchez.

Bento, who led Portugal to the 2012 European Championship semifinals, is Olympiakos’ third coach this year.

The Greek champions provided no further details Thursday on Bento’s contract.

Sanchez was fired Tuesday after less than a month-and-a-half in his job, after Olympiakos was knocked out of the Champions League qualifying round by Hapoel Beer Sheva.
