Ketsbaia quits Anorthosis Famagusta

NICOSIA - Anorthosis Famagusta coach Temuri Ketsbaia, who made Cyprus football history by taking the team to the group stage of the Champions League, quit the club on Monday, the team said. The 41-year-old former midfielder submitted his resignation to the Anorthosis board, which said it had failed to convince him to stay. Ketsbaia, a Georgian with Cypriot citizenship, played for Anorthosis between 1992-1994 before moving to AEK Athens and then the English Premier League with Newcastle. He had subsequent brief stints with Wolverhampton Wanderers and Dundee before returning to Anorthosis in 2002.
