Stelios Giannakopolous took on his first managerial position in August 2012 when he was appointed head coach of former club Paniliakos in the Greek second division.

His tenure was short lived as he was sacked by the club in 2013.

In November 2015 it was reported that Stelios was part of a consortium to takeover struggling Bolton Wanderers

The bid was in competition with former Bolton player Dean Holdsworth’s consortium’s bid but didn’t amount to anything.

In a bizarre career u-turn Stelios is now working as a professional fire fighter in the Greek fire station.
