Giorgios Karagounis would be open to a possible move back to managerless Fulham, his representative Paschalis Tountouris has told The Indepedendent.

Fulham are bottom of the Championship, with one point from their first seven games, and dismissed manager Felix Magath this week. Kit Symons will take the team for tomorrow’s game against Blackburn.

Karagounis enjoyed two years at Craven Cottage before captaining Greece in the World Cup and had opportunities to join clubs in Major League Soccer and in Greece this summer. But if Fulham were to make the 37-year-old an offer, he would “think very seriously” about returning as he is still a free agent.

“I am quite sure that he would not deny helping the team in this difficult moment,” Tountouris, Karagounis’ representative, told The Independent. “He has a special relationship with the fans, he loved them and they loved him. He sees the team is doing badly and he is very down, he would think very seriously about joining them even in the Championship if they made an offer.”
