Levy handed task of re-igniting Anorthosis

Ronny Levy has been handed the arduous task of restoring Anorthosis’ position as a major force in Cyprus football following the recent sacking of Spaniard Antonio Puche, who had lasted just a few months.

Levy, a 50-year-old Israeli, has coached a number of high-profile teams (Maccabi Haifa, Beitar Jerusalem) in his homeland, winning the league and cup three times.

This will be Levy’s second stint as the Famagusta’s team head coach, having managed them from October 2011 until April 2013 and leading them to second-place in his second year (2012-2013) in charge.

He was sacked on April 1st 2013 after a run of four games without a win.

Levy saw his new team in action for the first time on Wednesday in the Cyprus Cup, at home against second division outfit Othellos Athienou, and must not have been impressed.

Anorthosis needed extra time to overcome gutsy Othellos 2-1.

His first game in charge will be on Monday against bottom team Anagennisi Dherynia.
