• Had a modest career as a defensive midfielder in Cyprus, playing for second-tier Doxa between 1985 and 1989, before a five-year stint with Olympiakos where he reached the 1991 Cypriot Cup final. He finished his playing days with a solitary season at Larnaca.
• Moved into coaching aged 39 and immediately steered Doxa to promotion to the top flight, where they stayed throughout Christodoulou's tenure. Earned a reputation for tactical astuteness and an eye for talent in the Portuguese lower leagues.
• Guided Olympiakos to sixth in the First Division during his only campaign at the helm. Was rewarded with a switch to AEL, whom he led to a first Cypriot league title since 1968. Also took them to the 2012 Cypriot Cup final, where they suffered a 1-0 defeat by AC Omonia.
• His side were ten minutes from the 2012/13 UEFA Champions League group stage, but RSC Anderlecht struck two late goals to send AEL into the UEFA Europa League. Left the club by mutual consent in October 2012.
• Christodoulou's most recent post was a caretaker role at Anorthosis at the end of 2012/13, before his appointment as successor to Cyprus coach Nikos Nioplias in January 2014.
