Leandro Greco: Ready to take on a new challenge
Leandro Greco has brought to an end a second spell with Serie A giants Roma by completing a switch to Greek outfit Olympiakos.
The 26-year-old midfielder has penned a three-year contract with his new employers.
He leaves his home-town club after four years in the Italian capital.
Greco is a product of Roma's academy, but spent two years away from Stadio Olimpico between 2006 and 2008.
He has found first-team football hard to come by of late and is looking forward to making a fresh start with Olympiakos.
"I am very happy to be here," he said.
"Olympiakos are a very important club in Greece and Europe and I am looking forward to giving my all in order to help them achieve their goals.
"I remember the fans of Olympiakos from when we came with Roma to play in Piraeus and I was impressed - they are amazing."
