Lucas Pantelis (born 12 March 1982 in Adelaide, South Australia, Australia) is a retired Greek Australian footballer who last played for Wellington Phoenix in the A-League.

Club career[edit]

Pantelis signed for Adelaide United for the inaugural A-League season where he played 18 games scoring once. He missed almost the entire 2006–07 season with a serious knee injury though returned to competitive action for United during their 2007 Asian Champions League campaign where he played in four games. After an excellent 2007–08 season at Adelaide, many rumours arose about a possible transfer to Melbourne Victory however, he quashed these rumours when he signed a new deal with Adelaide United in January 2008 keeping him at the club until 2010.[1]

On 19 November it was revealed that Lucas reinjured his left knee, the same one that kept him out of the 2006–07 season.[2] He made his comeback game on 9 January 2009 against Newcastle Jets at Hindmarsh Stadium in which Lucas scored the second goal in the 2–0 win and came off in the 81st minute.[3] On 15 May 2011 it was confirmed that he had signed a two-year contract with Hyundai A-League side Wellington Phoenix.[4] Pantelis the suffered a third serious injury to his left knee - a full ACL rupture along with cartilage and meniscus tears during a pre-season match against Central Coast Mariners, and missed the entire 2011/12 season following surgery.[5]
