Career
Alefantos managed several clubs in the Greek Super League, including Olympiacos F.C. during 2004. He also had brief spells leading Larissa F.C. in 1975 and 1990.
Alefantos gained notoriety for his unusually short tenure as the manager of Fostiras F.C. in 2002. He was appointed manager of the club, replacing Vlachos in September 2002. One of Fostira's players, Dimitrios Moutas, immediately refused to train with Alefantos, and then Alefantos resigned later that day after failed contract negotiations. Eventually Alefantos appeared in ART channel of Greece, participating in a sport TV program called "Dokari Kai mesa" presented by Giannis Karatzaferis.
He died on 23 June 2020, age 81.
