"The club thanks Benni for his service over the last three seasons and wishes him well in his next endeavour. He now becomes an integral part of the club’s history and are proud of the successes we shared together.
"The club has appointed assistant coach Vasili Manousakis as caretaker coach, as the club prepares to announce the next chapter and new Head Coach.
