Anastasiadis pays price for poor string of PAOK results

PAOK has parted company with coach Angelos Anastasiadis, the Greek Super League club announced on Monday.

The 62-year-old’s third spell at the helm has come to an end following a goalless draw at home to Asteras Tripolis on Saturday which left the team in third, 10 points adrift of leader Olympiakos Piraeus and seven from second-placed Panathinaikos.

“PAOK FC announces its decision to end its cooperation with coach Angelos Anastasiadis,» the club said in a statement.

Anastasiadis’s deputy Giorgos Georgiadis has been appointed the interim coach until the end of the season.
