Former CSKA coach sacks Olympiakos coach on debut in Greece – World Football

Former CSKA coach Alan Pardew sacked his Olympiakos counterpart Carlos Corberan after winning the fifth-round derby 2-1 on his debut in charge of Aris Thessaloniki. The Gods of War needed a turn of the game to reach the ultimate success after Yorgos Masouras put the Greek champions ahead in the 15th minute. Alan Pardew’s side turned the game around within 180 seconds after goals from Daniel Mancini and Luis Enrique Palma in the 76th and 79th minutes.

Former CSKA footballer Bradley Maziku played 90 minutes for Aris’ success and received a yellow card in the match.

After the match, the Spanish coach of Olympiakos Carlos Corberan was fired due to another disappointing performance of the team from Piraeus. After the defeat, the “red and whites” are seven points behind their big city rivals Panathinaikos.

Olympiakos signed Marcelo, James Rodríguez, Cedric Bakambu and Diadi Samasekou at the end of the transfer window, but despite the big investment, the Piraeus side find themselves in an unenviable fifth place in the provisional standings of the Greek Championship, and in the Europa League group stage they suffered two defeats by Nantes and Freiburg.

Corberan, 39, left Huddersfield at the start of July precisely because of an offer from Olympiakos owner Evangelos Marinakis to take charge of the Greek giants, and he took over on August 1.

The Greek media write that the most serious candidate for the new head coach of Olympiakos is Laurent Blanc, who has already had contact with the club’s sporting director, Christian Karembio. The other two names that are in the running for the vacant coaching post are Rafael Benitez and Michel.
