Panathinaikos boss quits
Panathinaikos coach Angelos Anastasiadis
Anastasiadis quits after a poor Champions League run
Panathinaikos coach Angelos Anastasiadis has quit less than 24 hours after his team's Champions League defeat by Sturm Graz on Tuesday night.

The Austrian side, written off as Group A also-rans at the start of the second phase, ended Panathinaikos' hopes of reaching the last eight with a superb 2-1 win in Athens.

The result has left the Greeks at the bottom of the group with just one point and without a permanent coach.

Stratos Apostolakis, a former Panathinaikos player and a member of the current managment team, will be in charge temporarily while the club look for a suitable replacement.

The news will come as a welcome boost for Manchester United who only managed a draw with Valencia at Old Trafford.

Sir Alex Ferguson's men travel to Athens for their next Champions League match on 7 March in search of the three points that will put them through to the quarter finals.
