The third consecutive coach of Apollo Patras this season, after Nikos Vetoula and Kostas Delegos, is officially Yannis Christopoulos.
The Achaeans announced on Friday (8/12), as expected, the start of their cooperation with the Greek technician, who also gave his first statements.
In detail, the announcement of Apollo Patras:
The Apollo family welcomes to its ranks Yannis Christopoulos, who takes over the technical leadership of our beloved team.
Yiannis Christopoulos is from Patrino and in the past (2005-06) he has worked successfully in our beloved team.
He has also worked as a head coach at APOEL (2004-05) and in the Major Division of Greek basketball at AE Larissa (2006-07), Olympiada (2007-08), Trikala (2008-09) and last year at Promethea.
He has a lot of experience at the top level, as in the 2011-12 season he was at Bayern Munich, first as Dirk Bauermann’s partner and then as the first coach of the Bavarians.
Then from 2013 to 2016 he was initially Panagiotis Giannakis’ assistant in the Chinese National Team (remaining on its bench after Coach Giannakis left), with whom he participated in the 2016 Brazil Olympics.
He then took over the Beijing Ducks (2017-2022) in the Chinese league, while in 2019 he returned to the bench of the Chinese National Team, as Li Nan’s partner.
John, welcome to our family, may you be healthy and be sure that we will all fight together and achieve our goals.
