• Frankfurt-born Donis established himself as one of the finest wingers in the Greek top flight as he helped Panathinaikos to two league titles and three domestic cups in the 1990s. He was also part of the side that reached the UEFA Champions League semi-finals in 1995/96, losing 3-1 on aggregate to AFC Ajax.
• Donis's performances for Panathinaikos, particularly in Europe, prompted a transfer to Blackburn, where he stayed for one season before going on to represent AEK, Sheffield United and Huddersfield. He ended his playing days with AEK in 2001.
• A year after hanging up his boots, Donis moved into coaching, guiding lower-league Greek outfit Iliasiakos to successive promotions. Took charge at Larissa in 2004, steering the Thessaly side into the top flight in his first campaign. In 2007, he presided over the club's 2-1 Greek Cup final victory against Panathinaikos.
• The following season, 2007/08, Donis oversaw Larissa's qualification for the UEFA Cup group stage, where they lost to Everton FC, FC Zenit, AZ Alkmaar and 1. FC Nürnberg.
• After a brief spell with AEK, Donis then moved to Atromitos, with whom he suffered Greek Cup final defeats against AEK and Olympiacos FC in 2011 and 2012 respectively. A short stint at PAOK was followed by his appointment in October 2013 by APOEL, whom he led to their first Cypriot double since 1996 and into the 2014/15 UEFA Champions League group stage.
