Apoel boss Christiansen on the way out

Thomas Christiansen joined Apoel last June from AEK Larnaca and succeeded in leading the Nicosia team to their fifth consecutive title

Apoel have decided that they will not be renewing the contract with their championship winning Danish manager Thomas Christiansen.

The decision was reached on Thursday afternoon after a meeting between Apoel’s leadership and Christiansen.

According to unofficial reports, the decision not to renew his contract had been taken well before Wednesday’s cup final and that it would not have changed even if Apoel had won the final.

Among the reasons mooted for the change in management were a difference in the Dane’s remuneration package and crucially the team’s poor performances on the field, especially towards the tail end of the season.

Christiansen joined Apoel last June from AEK Larnaca and succeeded in leading the Nicosia team to their fifth consecutive title, the last 16 of the Europa League and the Cup final.
