Dimitrios "Dimitris" Machairas (Greek: Δημήτρης Μαχαίρας, born 16 August 1990) is a professional Greek football player, born in Pyrgos, Elis[1] and currently playing as a midfielder for Superleague side Levadiakos.[2]

Club career[edit]

Machairas started his career at the youth team of Levadiakos and signed his first professional contract in June 2009.[3] He was promoted to the first team on October of the same year[4] and made his debut on 25 October during a victorious home game against Iraklis,[1] coming as a substitute for Paulo Costa in the 46th minute.[5]

Levadiakos was relegated in the Football League for the following 2010–11 season and the club's youngsters, including Machairas, were expected to play a major role in the club's fight for a Superleague return.[6] Sure enough, Machairas made 18 appearances for Levadiakos in the 2010–11 Football League,[7] a season which saw Levadiakos being promoted to the Superleague despite losing the promotion play-offs, thanks to the Koriopolis scandal.[8]

International career[edit]

Machairas was called up at the Greek national under-21 football team in May 2012 for a 2013 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship qualification match against San Marino[9] but stayed on the bench.[10]
