He is also Skoda Xanti's all time top goalscorer with 75 goals and the player who scored both the 100th (May 22, 1992 against Aris Thessaloniki) and the 200th (February 13, 1994 against Panathinaikos) Skoda Xanthi's league goal. He played for the Thracian club until 1996, when he moved to AEK Athens.
