OUR FOOTBALL PLAYERS

Dimitris Stavropoulos (1997)

Is the continuation of the long tradition of producing quality players in the CB position out of Panionios GSS. Although right footed, he plays as a left CB where he was a regular in the Greek Superleague for 3 seasons. He has then moved to the historic and ambitious club of Reggina with a contract until June 2022.

Giannis Oikonomidis (1998)

Started his professional career in Panionios GSS, where he became a regular starter and has worn the Greek national U19 and currently U21 colors.  Adept at the old arts of dribbling and vertical passing. Technical, yet strong, never shies away from bodily contact. Can and has played in all midfield positions, both offensive/creative as well as defensive. In the summer on 2020 he signed a 3 year contract with Atromitos

Antonio Mico (2000)

A raw but genuine talent in the CB position, the very next generation from Stavropoulos. Elevated in summer 2018 to Panionios GSS mens team Greek Superleague, from the U19. Has now moved to Terrassa FC in Spain.

MEET THE TEAM

Yannis (Evans) Pavlopoulos

Is the case of a unique talent that couldn't manage his mentality and attitude and never realised his potential (young players can learn more from their elder peers mistakes, than they can from their successes). After finishing as a player in 2001, he got his UEFA A coaching license and has been in PGSS from 2006 in various roles from scout, then head scout, then technical director for academies, then first team. During this time the club produced or brought to prominence an unparalleled number of quality players including Siovas, Samaris, Tzavellas, Kolovos, Cocalic, Masouras, Kumordzi, Djebbour, Strakosha, Boumal, Durmishaj and others.

"Mr. Yianni, thank you. I owe a lot to people such as yourself and I will never forget that"

GIORGOS MASOURAS - Greece International

"Mr Evans has had a very important influence in my career. One of the first persons to believe in my talent and assisted me with sound advice to develop it. He is to me, my "footbal father" and I thank him."

DIMITRIS KOLOVOS - Greece International

"Evans has great experience scouting and bringing to prominence players. He knows how to make a player feel good and get 100% of the talent out of him. He has proven that time and time again."

Our ever, carefully expanding...

GLOBAL MEBA NETWORK

We carefully screen and select capable and reputable agents matching our work ethics and enter into mutually exclusive bilateral agreements (MEBA), whereby we are handling their players in Greece and they are handling ours in their respective countries exclusively. Whereas we remain open to dealing with many agents on an ad hoc basis, we believe the MEBA system enhances the responsiveness and familiarity of the intermediaries involved when working towards any project; which also serves the best interests of both the player and the club(s) concerned.
