Born on 24 May 1975 in the village of Ampelonas, near Larisa, he is one of the many players to emerge from Panathinaikos FC's youth academy and served the club for 15 years, debuting for the first team in 1994 . Playing as a central defender, Goumas was known for his tough tackling, excellent aerial ability and his unusual ability of scoring goals, often with spectacular shots.Goumas has also scored some very important and impressive goals during his career against Real Madrid, Juventus and Glasgow Rangers in European competitions and the title-deciding goal against rivals Olympiakos, in 2004.

The 34-year-old parted company with Panathinaikos in late June 2009 by mutual consent, ending his career with the Greens after 277 league appearances, and 27 goals. In September, Goumas announced his retirement from professional football.
