We are delighted to announce that the Greek-German attacking midfielder, Panagiotis Triadis, has joined the Club on a direct transfer from Apollon Smyrnis Football Club (ΠΑΕ Απόλλων Σμύρνης) for the 2018/19 season.
This valued signing marks an unprecedented episode of a direct transfer between a Greek Super League Club and an Indian Super League Club.
Triadis has represented the German National Team from U-15 to U-17 levels and the Greece National Team for the U-19 level.
Moreover, he is a versatile attacking midfielder having an excellent vision and a tremendous range of passing and can play through the wings possessing deceptive pace to break into an attack.
The 26-year-old combines German precision to set the tempo and makes things tick in the centre of the park along with Greek strength and physicality to orchestrate the midfield.
Having plied his trade in clubs like SV Wehen Wiesbaden, Xanthi FC and Apollon Smyrnis FC, Panagiotis Triadis brings in a wealth of experience to reinforce our club's attacking repertoire for the ongoing season.
Coach Eelco had the following to say on the club’s latest acquisition:
“Triadis is a player that can play on the wings and midfield. He has the German fighting spirit in him which is always welcome. Hope he hits the ground running as we are already short on time. We welcome him into our family and support him all the way.”
Triadis comes into the squad as Augustine Okrah had to cut short his spell in the Indian Super League after sustaining a serious injury. With a home match against Chennaiyin FC on the horizon, Coach Eelco will be looking to bolster our attacking threat as we push for a playoff spot in the Hero Indian Super League 2018/19 Season.
