NICOSIA, Cyprus — Coach Giorgos Donis has left APOEL Nicosia after an 18-month run that saw him lead the team to a Cypriot league and cup double as well as qualification for the group stage of the Champions League.

APOEL spokesman Nektarios Petevinos told The Associated Press on Tuesday that Donis and club management had mutually agreed to part company after a spate of poor results allowed rival Apollon Limassol to move level with the Nicosia club at the top of the standings.

APOEL's latest setback came on Monday when last-place Ayia Napa earned a 1-1 draw with an injury time equalizer.

Petevinos said the search for a new coach has already begun.

In a statement, Donis said his stint at APOEL was "one of the best" in his career.
