Pambos Christodoulou has been appointed as the new Cyprus national team manager and will lead the team through the qualifying group matches for Euro 2016, the Cyprus Football Association announced yesterday.
“Pambos Christodolou today signed a contract with the CFA to help the Cyprus national team with its Euro 2016 obligations,” said the announcement.
The former AEL, Olympiakos Nicosia and Doxa Katokopia boss will take up the position immediately.
Born in Nicosia in 1967 Christodolou is well known for his strong team building skills. He replaces Greek coach Nicos Nioplias who left in September after a poor qualifying campaign that saw Cyprus finish bottom of their qualifying section with just five points in a group containing Switzerland, Iceland, Norway, Slovenia and Albania.
