Johan Walem had a poor record as manager of Cyprus

The Cyprus Football Association (CFA) has announced that coach Johan Walem has left his post as national team manager by mutual consent.

“The CFA wishes to announce that it has reached an agreement to terminate its partnership with the Cyprus men’s national team manager Johan Walem by mutual consent”, a press release by the CFA stated.

“We would like to thank Mr. Walem for his time as national team manager and we wish him all the best for the future on both a professional and personal level”, the press release concluded.

A number of possible names have been linked to the post, even prior to Walem’s contract termination. The mooted managers include Greeks Traianos Dellas, Nikos Kostenoglou and Christos Kontis, as well as Cypriot Chrysis Michael who is currently managing Limassol club Karmiotissa.

Walem, who was appointed on January 25, 2020, has not enjoyed the best of records as manager Cyprus, even within the context of the Cyprus national team’s level.

In six UEFA Nations League – League C matches, Walem recorded four losses, one draw and one win.

While Walem had a mandate from the CFA to implement a somewhat drastic process of renewal in order to inject new blood into the national team setup through the expedited introduction of young Cypriot players, the national team’s performances and results still left a lot to be desired.
