- Eleftheropoulos Replaces Chavos at Asteras -
Makis Chavos is the FOURTH Greek SuperLeague manager to be sacked, after Asteras Tripolis was handed their third defeat of the season on Sunday. Early today, the club announced that Dimitris Eleftheropoulos will be the new man in charge of the Arkades.
Makis Chavos took over Asteras Tripolis at the end of last season. After suffering 3 defeats to open the 2016-2017 Greek SuperLeague, the club announced the parting of ways with the Greek manager. Asteras, who in recent years has been one of the stronger sides in the league, currently sit in last place in the standings and remain the only team without a point this season. Chavos is the 4th SuperLeague manager to be sacked this year after Victor Sanchez (Olympiacos, before the SuperLeague started), Traianos Dellas (Atromitos), and Alekos Vosniadis (Veria) were released by their respective clubs. And it is only September...
The Arkades announced today that Dimitris Eleftheropoulos will take over as manager. The former Olympiacos player has coached since 2012 including the clubs of Panionios, AEK Larnca, Olympiacos Volou, Panthrakikos, and most recently Veria. His first game in charge will be a tough one, when Asteras Tripolis travels to Athens to play Panathinaikos on Sunday.
