APOEL star Nuno Morais breaks league appearances record
Following his performance for APOEL against Apollon Limassol on Saturday, Portuguese midfielder Nuno Morais made history by becoming the foreigner with the most appearances in the island’s top flight championship.
After the 1-0 loss away to Apollon Limassol, former Chelsea star Morais reached 251 league appearances for the 2015-16 Protathlima CYTA champions.
Morais, who has only played for APOEL in Cyprus, overtook, in a somewhat ironic twist, Apollon Limassol legend Milenko Spoljaric.

Croatian midfielder Spoljaric made 250 appearances for the Limassol side between 1992-2003 and would ultimately make 21 appearances for the Cyprus national team after gaining citizenship.
