A humilating 3-1 loss by Thessaloniki’s PAOK to a bankrupt and short-handed OFI team from Crete in Greece’s soccer league has led Manager Angelos Anastasiadis to quit.

OFI had only 15 players left on its squad but put together a great performance behind goals from Mayron George, Andreas Lambropoulos and Vassilis Koutsianikoulis while PAOK’s only counter was a score from Dimitris Papadopoulos.

The listless performance of his team so infuriated Anastasiadis that he quit almost on the spot, turning in his resignation to the team’s board although they didn’t immediately accept it. Angry PAOK fans also protested outside their team’s stadium back home after the loss in Crete.

The result lifted Olympiakos, which beat Atromitos, 2-1, to an eight-point lead in the league before it goes up to Thessaloniki to play the PAOK team that is now in disarray.

Olympiakos got goals from Ibrahim Afellay and league top scorer Costas Mitroglou, while Atromitos got one from Marcelinho Leite.

The results also mean that Panathinaikos is now second with PAOK but have a tie-breaking lead with a better head-to-head record as soccer doesn’t use playoff games.

Asteras Tripolis, in fourth, defeated Platanias Hanion 1-0 on a goal by a new player, Matias Igelsias who appeared to be offside when he scored.

In other games, Panetolikos whipped Ergotelis 4-0, PAS Giannina beat Veria 4-1, Xanthi drew 1-1 with Panionios and the Kerkyra-Levadiakos game ended 0-0.
