Defender, 6ft2 . 18 years old.

A product from our academy. Played against Aris and we should see more of him before the season is finished .

So far looks more ready than Retso and I believe he is stealing his CB roster spot from him..very good today with nice Control and distribution

Keep working mikre kai MAKRUA apo tous ARDs!

Good to hear, hopefully Bento doesn't experiment with him and play him out of position and let's him develop in his natural position which is centre  back.

He is Greek after all and thus needs to be scrutinised more than te foreign duds that are brought in to wear our historic jersey.

He looks very strong in the air. Has a good leap on him. Let's hope he can become the next Manolas for us.

He has been in included in the squad for the airaklis match and I hope he starts because he deserves to retain his spot.

Hey Kid, you have a big future ahead of you. Whilst your not as technically gifted on the ball as Retsos was , you are definitely stronger .
Good performance today against Juventus. 19years old (still growing biologically) in his maiden CL appearance away from home . Held his own . Made a couple of bad reads but  this guy is better than most of our other defenders on the roster.
Our academy is producing decent players.

Great player, cant believe he came from the academy. Your right about his ball control, but i think its more psychological then it is his actual technique. I saw him clear it more then attempt to pass it when the oppurtunity presented itself.

he will improve, but his reading of aerial balls is a weakness and was an issue today. a couple of easy should be easy clearances went over his head and feel to the opposition for chances.

The kid was tragic against Barca. Out of his depth but I’m not going to write him off . He will learn and get better.He was playing against one of the worlds best teams and partnering Botia who he hasn’t played with before.
Fuckface Lemonis experimented for this match with a new CB pairing.

Definitely a rough game. He was horrible. Nice goal, that was about it. But he is young and it can be a leaning experience. No need to write him off.

young cbs do idiotic things, better cbs than nicolaou

i like how he didn't hang his head and showed passion, yes he was shit, and was kind of shit against larisa too, but our options at cb our shit so i cant fault giving him a start.

but it is two poor starts in a row, i am guessing against paok he is on the pine.

WTF was Lemonis thinking honestly. I can't really criticize the kid. Yes he fucked up but talk about being thrown to the wolves. A partner returning from a long lay off with zero defensive chemistry. It's madness.

He could have either shined or drowned. He will adjust, but he needs to work on his strength be alittle bit stronger then work on his speed. He has it in him. I think he also needs good support. He can be a big deal in the future if on the right path

Come January I would loan him out to get more playing time.

My rotation would be Botia, Engels and Cisse

I thought he had a pretty good game vs Juventus, certainly did not look out of place.
