Club career[edit]

Fans have a lot of respect on him, because of his passion and love in AEK Athens' badge after spending 12 years at the club. On May 26, 2008 Georgeas signed a new 2 year contract which will keep him at the club until 2010.[1] Georgeas is also regarding to be one of the clubs most loyal players and was voted in the top 10 legend list of AEK Athens history. In the 2010/11 season, Georgeas scored his first goal for the club after spending 12 years at the club and scored against Ergotelis in a 2-3 away win. Georgeas also scored his second goal for the club just weeks later against Larissa. Next year, his coach Nikos Kostenoglou wanted to utilize the talent and the experience of Nikos Georgeas, something that led Kotenoglou to try Georgeas in a new position; as a defensive midfielder. Georgeas, who the previous season did not play in AEK's first eleven, tried to meet the expectations of his team coach and managed to be proved as a tool, as he could play in more than one position. Moreover, he was chosen to be the captain in some games as he was the oldest player in the team.

In July 2012, Georgeas' contract with AEK ended bringing to a close a 12 years at the club. Veria was the next stop in his career, counting 18 appearances and several of them as team captain. After the end of the one year contract with Veria, AEK decided to bring back Nikos Georgeas to play in the third division. He was considered one of the leaders in AEK's effort to return to Super League.
