Takis Lemonis has become the sixth managerial casualty of a Greek Super League season that is only 12 rounds old, resigning from his post at Panionios after just three games in charge.
On the club’s website, it was officially announced that the Panionios Board of Directors had accepted the former Olympiakos manager’s resignation.
Within the same statement, the club also announced that the president, Fani Galli, had also resigned.
The reasons for Lemonis’ departure were also outlined in the official statement, which explained that the former player had persisted with requests to have assistant manager Giotis Stamopoulos sacked.
Lemonis had also requested an administrative overhaul at the club, asking for the removal of chief executive Christopher Mavropoulos (who has been promoted to president and managing director in the wake of Galli’s departure) and athletic director Giorgios Tseliou.
Giotis Stamopoulos has been appointed as caretaker manager.
