re­viewed rec­om­men­da­tions and per­son­ally in­ter­view­ing the can­di­dates.

As un­der­stood by the Fi­nan­cial Mir­ror, the club is to see fur­ther struc­tural changes, with Omo­nia an­nounc­ing on Thurs­day the hir­ing of Ni­cos Char­alam­bides as Gen­eral Man­ager of Strate­gic Plan­ning.

Char­alam­bides re­spon­si­bil­ity and foot­ball sec­tion.

“With his ex­pe­ri­ence and knowl­edge, as well as the estab­lish­ment of pro­ce­dures and mech­a­nisms, he will try to en­sure the smooth op­er­a­tion and de­vel­op­ment of the foot­ball team, as well as the con­di­tions that will al­low the achieve­ment of the club’s medium and long-term goals,” said Demetriou.

“Char­alam­bides has many years of ex­pe­ri­ence man­ag­ing large sports or­gan­i­sa­tions and is be­lieved to be able to re­spond suc­cess­fully to the dif­fi­cult task he has un­der­taken,” he added.

Omo­nia is to see more struc­tural changes over the com­ing weeks, as the club is search­ing for pro­fes­sion­als to han­dle the team’s fit­ness, which Green’s tech­ni­cal di­rec­tor An­gel Gomez has ad­mit­ted is “not up to stan­dard”.

Demetriou said that the com­pany aims “to cre­ate some­thing solid and strong, a pro­fes­sional foot­ball team that works pro­fes­sion­ally, with or­gan­i­sa­tion and dis­ci­pline, which will be in a po­si­tion to hon­our the club’s his­tory of suc­cess”.

“We are aware that this process takes time. Ob­vi­ously, our po­si­tion in the league re­veals mis­takes and weak­nesses. Through self-crit­i­cism, we have come to con­clu­sions. Based on these find­ings, we plan to strengthen var­i­ous ar­eas, as well as cre­at­ing mech­a­nisms and pro­ce­dures to en­sure the smooth func­tion­ing of the whole club,” said Demetriou.
