He also competed with the same team in the past in European competition qualifications. He is 25 years old and has established himself as a regular pick since his move from Apollon Limassol FC in 2004. Probably the best goal in his career so far is the goal against Maccabi Tel-Aviv in the UEFA Cup where he started from his own half, passed the entire Maccabi defence and slid a shot past the goalkeeper.
