Apollon Limassol sign Ioan Andone as new coach
Apollon Limassol FC have named Ioan Andone as their coach following the dismissal of Christos Christoforou last week.
Ioan Andone born 15 March 1960 is a Romanian football coach.
After retiring as a player, Ioan Andone started coaching Sportul Studențesc.
He later coached U Cluj for two years, Sportul Studențesc for a second period, Petrolul Ploiești, FC Farul Constanța, FC Brașov, FC Bihor Oradea and Sportul Studențesc for a third time.
In 2003 he took over Dinamo București, and led them to one league championship and three consecutive cup titles. In December 2005 he took over Cypriot club Omonia Nicosia and stayed there until January 2007.
Andone is scheduled to arrive in Cyprus on Sunday but will first travel to Germany to watch VfL Borussia Mönchengladbach – Apollon's opponents in UEFA Europa League Group A next Thursday − in Bundesliga action against Hannover 96.
Apollon will be Andone's 15th club in a nomadic coaching career that dates back to 1993.
Andone has worked in Bulgaria, Kazakhstan, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates as well as in his homeland, where he has led, among others, CFR 1907 Cluj, FC Dinamo Bucureşti and FC Rapid Bucureşti.
All the best to Apollon Limassol Fc
