Omonia owner steps in to put team back on track
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.
