AMSTERDAM Feb 17 (Reuters) - A majority of Dutch people want Greece to leave the euro, Dutch daily De Telegraaf reported on Wednesday based on a poll it commissioned.

The poll among 5,300 Dutchmen showed some 92 percent felt Greece should leave the euro currency, while more than 90 percent of the respondents are also in favour of the Netherlands and Germany exiting the euro zone and getting their own currency back, the paper said.

Based on the poll, more than 60 percent of the respondents are worried about developments in Greece, because banks which have bought Greek debt may run into trouble and cause a new crisis, the paper said. (Reporting by Gilbert Kreijger, writing by George Georgiopoulos)
