Panathinaikos coach Stramaccioni fired after a series of disappointing results

Greek club Panathinaikos has fired coach Andrea Stramaccioni following a series of disappointing results.

The 40-year-old Italian was dismissed after a meeting Wednesday with the club’s chairman — a day after Panathinaikos lost 2-1 to second-division club OFI in the Greek Cup.

A former coach at Italian clubs Inter Milan and Udinese, Stramaccioni took over at Panathinaikos last November.
