Sixteen-year-old installed as president of Greek club after his father buys it

Ionikos have themselves a very fresh face in the boardroom.

FORMER GREEK FOOTBALLER Alexis Kougias has installed his 16-year-old son as the president of third-tier club Ionikos after completing a takeover.

Kougias had spells as AEK Athens president and is now the majority shareholder at second-tier Apollon Larissa.

The 66-year-old added to his portfolio of clubs with the purchase of Ionikos and his teenage son Christos has been put in charge in an eyebrow-raising move.

“Ionikos is now changing its board and with many dreams and aspirations sets the goal of creating a healthy sports club that will star in the years to come,” read a club statement.

Kougias last year was at the centre of controversy after he approached the touchline and spat at PAOK’s Moroccan international winger Omar El Kaddouri.
