Club career[edit]

Born in Larissa, Venetis began his career with Iraklis, but moved to Larissa after failing to make an appearance. After two years, he moved to Scotland and spent three-and-a-half years with Scottish Premier League side Dundee United, with a further six months at Ross County.[2] Venetis moved back to his homeland Greece in 2003, where he would play for Akratitos F.C., Kallithea F.C., Larissa F.C. and OFI Crete in the Greek Super League.[3]

Venetis played for the Greece national under-21 football team, making his debut in 2000.[4]
