CHRIS COLEMAN has resigned as Atromitos boss in Greece.
The ex-Wales boss, 53, had a difficult start to the new season with three points from their opening seven games.
Winless Atromitos sit third from bottom but Coleman has decided it's the right time to leave after 20 months in charge – the third longest-serving manager in the division.
Former Fulham and Sunderland chief Coleman, who led Wales to the Euro 2016 semi-finals, arrived in January 2022 and kept struggling Atromitos in the top-flight.
He guided them to eighth spot in last season's Greek Super League.

"He took over the technical leadership of Atromitos in January 2022 and remained on the bench in 61 matches.
“Chris, you will forever belong to the Atromitos family and we wish you every success on a personal and professional level."
