Charalampos "Charis" Mavrias (Greek: Χαράλαμπος (Χάρης) Μαυρίας; born 21 February 1994) is a Greek footballer, playing for HNK Rijeka in Croatia.

Club career[edit]

Panathinaikos[edit]

Mavrias joined Panathinaikos' youth academy in 2007, aged 13, and was promoted to the first-team squad in 2010, after signing a professional contract in the previous year. On 20 October 2010 he made his first-team – and UEFA Champions League – debut, playing the last 12 minutes of a 0–0 home draw against Rubin Kazan,[2] thus becoming the youngest Greek ever to appear in the competition, and the second youngest overall (only behind Celestine Babayaro, being surpassed later by Alen Halilović and Youri Tielemans).[3] Four days later he made his league debut, again as a substitute in a 0–1 loss at AEK.

Mavrias scored his first professional goal on 18 February 2012, netting his side's last of a 2–0 success at Ergotellis;[4] he scored his first European goal on 31 July 2012, again netted the last of a 2–0 win at Motherwell in the first leg of the third qualifying round of the Champions League, one minute after coming onto the pitch as a substitute.[5]

Sunderland[edit]

On 22 August 2013, Mavrias joined English Premier League side Sunderland on a four-year contract, for an undisclosed fee,[6] rumoured to be £2-3 million.[7] However, he was left out of the squad to play Southampton due to lack of match fitness.

Mavrias made his debut five days later, coming on as a second-half substitute in a 4–2 home success over Milton Keynes Dons, for the campaign's Football League Cup.[8] He scored his first goal on 25 January of the following year, netting the winner against Kidderminster Harriers in the fourth round of the FA Cup.[9]

On 2 February 2015, it was confirmed Mavrias had joined his former club Panathinaikos on loan until the end of the 2014-15 season.

Mavrias returned to Sunderland where he has been training and playing for the Black Cats Under-21s – and is understood to have impressed the club’s coaching staff with his attitude and contribution. But Mavrias has not come close to being included in the first-team squad, however is not bitter over seeing his career stall on Wearside. “I took the decision to leave Panathinaikos and go to Sunderland, and I think anyone in my position would take this decision,” he told the Greek press.[10] On 9 January 2016, almost two years after his last match with the first team, Mavrias entered the game in second half as a substitute in a 3-1 away loss against Arsenal for FA Cup.[11]

Fortuna Düsseldorf[edit]

He was loaned to Fortuna Düsseldorf on 27 January 2016.[12] Mavrias - who has 18 months remaining on his Sunderland contract - now has a chance to play regular first-team football after joining Düsseldorf until the end of the campaign, with a view to a permanent switch next summer.[13] On 6 February 2016, he made his debut with a club, in a 0-1 home loss against Heidenheim.

Mavrias performance in Düsseldorf was satisfying, leading the club to set an offer for the Greek international winger. Unfortunately on 24 June 2016, Sunderland reject Fortuna Düsseldorf's lower bid than the £400,000 clause to convert the loan into a permanent switch.[14]

Karlsruher SC[edit]

On 6 September 2016, after three seasons spent playing for Sunderland, only 7 official caps overall collected as a Black Cats man, plus 2 experiences as a loanee (at Fortuna Düsseldorf and Panathinaikos), he joined 2. Bundesliga side Karlsruher SC for a three-years contract.[15] On 10 September 2016, he made his debut with the club in a 4–0 away loss against Union Berlin. Unfortunately, KSC harboured hopes of promotion back to the Bundesliga this summer, after finishing seventh last term had erupted during the year as the club relegated to Germany’s third tier.

Rijeka[edit]

On 24 August 2017, Mavrias joined Rijeka in the Croatian First Football League on a one-year contract with a three-year extension option.[16][17]
