Takis Lemonis named Olympiacos coach

Olympiacos appoint Takis Lemonis as their new manager after sacking Besnik Hasi.

Takis Lemonis has been appointed as the new head coach of Greek Superleague side Olympiacos.

The 57-year-old begins his fourth spell in charge of the side and replaces Besnik Hasi, who was relieved of his duties following the 3-2 loss to fierce rivals AEK Athens on Sunday.

In a short statement on their website, Olympiacos confirmed: "Olympiakos FC announces the start of its co-operation with the coach Takis Lemonis."

Hasi had been in charge of the side for just three months and delivered a return of eight points from his five league games in charge, leaving them five points behind leaders Athens.

Lemonis's first game back in charge will be a daunting trip to Juventus in the Champions League on Wednesday night.
