Andrea Stramaccioni Named Coach of Greece's Panathinaikos

Παναθηναϊκός-κόσμος-Στραματσόνι-Panathinaikos-kosmos7-741x486Former Inter Milan and Udinese coach Andrea Stramaccioni will be the new coach of Panathinaikos, the Greek Super League club announced on Sunday.
The 39-year-old Italian manager has signed a two-year deal with the Athens team to take over from Yiannis Anastasiou, who resigned last Monday after an unsuccessful game against AEK of Athens.
“I’m really happy and proud to be at this club,” Stramaccioni said in a statement on the club’s website. “I’m in the right place for the work I want to do and prove to the people who have brought me here that I can meet the demands required.
I do not want to make big promises; this is something I don’t do generally. The only thing I pledge is that I will give the best I can to take this club where it wants to go…
I am coming in mid-way during the season and this is difficult because there is no time but much work to be done – starts for the derby coming up fast.”
Stramaccioni will make his debut on the Greens’ bench in the Athens derby against arch rival Olympiacos Piraeus after the international break on November 21.
Born in Rome, Stramaccioni began his soccer career playing at Bologna in 1994 but a serious knee injury forced him to quit. He began coaching provisional youth teams and joined Roma’s coaching staff in 2005.
He became head coach at Inter in 2012-13 before taking over at Udinese for the 2014-15 season.
