AEK Larnaca by Imanol Idiakez, Cypriot Cup champion

The Basque coach won his first title in Cyprus with the AEK Larnaca, a team full of Spaniards who arrived in 2016 from the hand of Catalan sports director Xavi Roca.

Imanol Idiakez discovered today what it feels like to lift a trophy in Cyprus. The Gipuzkoa coach was proclaimed Cup champion with AEK Larnaca after defeating (2-1) Apollon Limassol in the final of the tournament. It is the second title in the history of the yellow club, which debuted its record with the 2004 Cup.

The first title of Imanol Idiakez with the AEK Larnaca did not come without suffering, as Apollon went ahead on the stroke of half-time through Schembri and it was not until the 69th minute when the Frenchman Taulemesse managed to equalize the contest. Only 2 minutes later, in the 71 ‘, the Tenerife Acorán Barrera materialized the comeback.

Nine Spaniards were holders in the meeting: Juan Pablo Colinas, Nacho Cases, David Català, Jorge Larena, Ander Murillo and Tete were part of the AEK eleven. Adrián Sardinero and Héctor Yuste, on the other hand, appeared in the Apollon line-up for a game that ended with two expelled players after Giannou and Sachetti saw the red card in the discount and the match ended with both teams with one player less.

The assistants Felipe Benítez and Antonio Hidalgo and the physical trainer Néstor Orozco, members of Imanol Idiakez’s coaching staff in the AEK Larnaca, also appear as Cup champions. Like the Spanish also Carles Soria, Joan Tomás and Truyols, who saw the Cup final from the Larnaca bench.
