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]
