Coach Ketsbaia quits Anorthosis Famagusta

Former Newcastle midfielder Temuri Ketsbaia has resigned as coach of Cypriot side Anorthosis Famagusta.

The board were keen to keep the Georgian despite the fact the team are out of the domestic title race, but the 41-year-old former Magpies midfielder handed in his notice on Monday - and made it clear his decision was final.

''The board at first did not accept his resignation and asked him to withdraw the decision to step down from the post,'' read a statement on the club's official website. ''Mr Ketsbaia maintained his position that the decision is final.

''He added that the decision was taken after much consideration and to serve the best interests of the club.

''The board unanimously expressed its regret at the decision of Temuri Ketsbaia. We thank Mr Ketsbaia for all his work as he was the main factor in this year's great success in the Champions League.''

Ketsbaia took up the reins at Anorthosis in 2004, initially as player-manager, and this season became the first man ever to lead a Cypriot team into the group stages of the Champions League.
