Ionikos go with Gmoh

Polish coach Jacek Gmoh has replaced Jean-Michel Cavalli at the helm of Greek side Ionikos FC.

Jacek Gmoh, a Polish trainer with a wealth of experience in Greek football, has taken charge of Alpha Ethniki side Ionikos FC after Jean-Michel Cavalli yesterday relinquished the post for personal reasons.

No home wins
Cavalli only took over in July but a mediocre campaign so far sees Ionikos sitting in 13th position having won just two matches in eleven outings this season. The club are yet to win at home this term and Cavalli said after Sunday’s 1-0 loss against Proodeftiki FC: "Even if we'd played all night we wouldn't have scored".

Championship success
It is thought that Cavalli's exit was largely down to deteriorating relations with the Ionikos president, Nikos Kanellakis. He is replaced by Gmoh, a man who has guided Panathinaikos FC to the Greek title in addition to managing, among others, the country's two other leading clubs, Olympiakos Piraeus FC and AEK Athens FC.

World Cup experience
Gmoh acted as Poland coach Kazimierz Gorski's assistant during the 1974 FIFA World Cup before taking charge of his home country for the 1978 competition in Argentina. He started coaching in Greece in 1980 and has reportedly taken charge of Ionikos without signing a contract.
