Wadi Degla terminate contract of Cypriot Coach Papavasiliou
Published in Ahram Online on 21 - 01 - 2021

Egypt's Wadi Degla have terminated the contract of Cypriot Coach Nikodimos Papavasiliou, hiring the team's Assistant Coach, Abdel-Baqi Gamal, as a caretaker tactician in the coming games of the Premier League, the club announced on Thursday.
"We thank coach Nikodimos Papavasiliou for all his achievements with the team, and we wish him a brilliant future in his career," read a statement by Wadi Degla released on Thursday.

The 50-year-old tactician was named as Degla's coach last season following the sacking of Greek boss Takis Gonias in February 2020.
Papavasiliou helped Wadi Degla introduce a superb performance during the league games, but the team didn't meet the expectations of fans and management following a string of poor results.
Degla finished in 15th place on the Egyptian Premier League teams' table last season, only one place away from the relegation zone.
Wadi Degla are currently in 16th place on the table, with only 6 points after playing 8 games so far this season.
Papavasiliou managed several clubs in Cyprus, including Olympiakos Nicosia and Apollon Limassol. He also had a successful spell in Slovakia, where he helped Slovan Bratislava reach the domestic cup final in 2016.
