Club career[edit]

Early years[edit]

Aris academies found a talented defender and the club signed with him a contract for two years. Many clubs in Greece were interested in signing Bougaidis, as he was very good with the youth team of Aris and with the Greece U19 team, too. Four clubs from Europe approached him, but he chose to play for AEK Athens.

AEK Athens[edit]

On 16 May 2011 Mavroudis Bougaidis signed a 3-year deal with Greek giants AEK Athens.[1] Mavroudis Bougaidis made his Europa League debut against Anderlecht as a substitution. Bougaidis also played against Sturm Graz in the Europa League and impressed in Greek Super League matches at the end of 2011–12 season. In July 2012 AEK Athens rejected a €1.1m bid for Bougaidis from Everton F.C.[2] For the 2012–13 season Bougaidis achieved 14 appierances for the Greek Superleague in a disappointing season for AEK Athens as it failed to stay in the first division of the league.

Granada CF[edit]

On 30 July 2013 Bougaidis signed a 3 years deal with La Liga team Granada CF.[3] Initially expected to join Hércules CF on loan,[4] the deal later collapsed and he was assigned to B-team in Segunda División B.[5] On 1 January 2014 Bougaidis was loaned to Aris Thessaloniki F.C., his first professional team until the end of the 2013-14 season. On 4 July 2014 Bougaidis was loaned to Lechia Gdańsk for the season 2014/15 playing in Polish Ekstraklasa.[6] He made his debut on 14 September 2014 against GKS Bełchatów (1-1).

National Team[edit]

Mavroudis Bougaidis has 20 appearances for Greece U-19 National team with 4 goals. On 15 July 2012, he participated in the Final of Euro Under 19 against Spain in a 1-0 defeat. He played the whole match as a central defender next to his good friend Dimitris Kourbelis.[7] On June 2013 Bougaidis participated on the World Cup U23 with Greece eliminating in the round of 16.
