Panagiotis Spyropoulos (Greek: Παναγιώτης Σπυρόπουλος, born 21 August 1992) is a Greek professional football player, currently playing for Panathinaikos in the Superleague. He has also played for Panionios and Niki Volou on loan.

Club career[edit]

Spyropoulos started his career at Delta Ethniki side Aititos Spata, from where Panionios snatched him in July 2010 and placed him in the club's under-20 team.[1][2] In 2011, he joined Football League 2 side Niki Volou on loan from Panionios.[3]

On 27 August 2012, Spyropoulos made his Superleague debut in a victorious season opener against Aris,[4] a match where both teams used only Greek players in the starting lineups for the first time in a First Division match since 1990.[5]

Panathinaikos[edit]

On 4 January 2013, Panathinaikos F.C. announced the signing of Spyropoulos in a 4 year-deal, but his contact would be valid on 1 June 2013, when the young defender's contract with Panionios was due to expire.[6] Finally, on 31 January 2013, Spyropoulos signed with Panathinaikos.

Personal life[edit]

Panagiotis shares the same last name as another full back who starred at Panionios, Greek international Nikos Spyropoulos.[1]
