Georgi Vasiliev has resigned as coach of Cypriot strugglers Nea Salamis FC after just two months in charge.

Relegation threat
The Bulgarian coach's decision comes in the wake of the 5-0 defeat by Olympiakos Nicosia FC in the Cyprus Cup, the club’s fifth consecutive defeat. Salamis lie in 12th position in the 14-team Cypriot First Division and are in danger of relegation from the top flight.

Tait departure
The club's last league victory came in October when they defeated bottom side Aris Limassol FC 4-1. After a strong start to the season, Salamis have struggled since the departure of former Birmingham city player Paul Tait, whose influence on the pitch has been sorely missed.
