Uzoho’s Coach At Omonia Nicosia Lennon Sacked

Super Eagles goalkeeper Francis Uzoho’s head coach at Omonia Nicosia Neil Lennon has been sacked by the Cypriot club side after seven months in charge.

Omonia Nicosia made the announcement soon after a 1-0 home defeat by Nea Salamis that leaves them seventh in the Division One table.

Former Celtic boss Lennon led Omonia to Cypriot Cup success in May.
Last week Lennon almost guided Omonia to a shock 0-0 draw against Manchester United in the Europa League but eventually fell to a 1-0 loss thanks to a Scot McTominay late strike.

The statement from Omonia read: “We inform you that we have agreed with Neil Lennon to stop our collaboration,” the club said in a statement on their website.

“Unfortunately, the ongoing competitive instability and the significant losses of points in the championship are the main reasons that made us decide to end our partnership.

“Mr Lennon has written his name in the history of Omonia and deserves the respect and recognition of all of us. Our paths separate, but the memories of our collaboration will unite us forever.

“We sincerely thank Mr Lennon for his contribution and wish him every success in his future career.”

Lennon signed a deal to take him up to the end of the 2023-24 campaign when he was appointed by Omonia in March.

He had been out of management since stepping down from his second managerial spell at Celtic Park just over a year before that.

Lennon led Celtic to 10 major trophies across his two stints as manager, winning two league titles, two Scottish Cups and a League Cup having returned to the club in February 2019 following the departure of Brendan Rodgers.
