Club career[edit]

AEK Athens[edit]

Gentsoglou was promoted from the AEK youth in 2006, but made his first senior appearances for AEK in 2008–09 season. On 25 June 2008, Gentsoglou renewed his contract with AEK until 2014.

Gentsoglou was first used as a Center Back by coach Dusan Bajevic, but he was not suitable for that position. After signing with famous Greek agent John Kainourgios,on his first appearance as a defensive midfielder, in the middle of the 2009–2010 season, Gentsoglou did greatly, and he has been featured in almost every AEK Athens game since then. Gentsoglou scored his first goal for AEK against Atromitos in a 3–2 home win. The following week Gentsoglou scored the equalising goal against Kavala. After the arrival of new coach Nikos Kostenoglou, Gentsoglou has featured in most of AEK's matches in the 2011/12 season.

Sampdoria[edit]

On 19 January 2012 he finished his career in AEK in order to sign a contract with Sampdoria.[1] Gentsoglou did not feature for Sampdoria in the 2011–12 season, and was sent out on loan the following season to Serie B squad Livorno to gain playing experience.[2] Gentzoglou will continue his career in Serie B on loan for Spezia, as stated by the official website of Sampdoria.The 23 year old defensive midfielder was not among the first priorities of Sinisa Mihajlovic.As it became known, Spezia next summer will have the right to buy the contract of the player.[3]

International career[edit]
