Giannis Christopoulos (Greek: Γιάννης Χριστόπουλος; born 12 November 1972 in Kalamata, Greece) is a Greek professional football coach and a former player. He realized early on that sports and football will play a leading role in his life . Against the dreams that had his mother Kostoula for her eldest son, whom he wanted to see a scientist, mathematician or physicist, Giannis Christopoulos followed his own wants and his own desires and every indication is justified .


The long journey began coaching 14 years ago, somewhere in 1999, when the 27 years old coach, finished as a player ( played in Kalamata, Pamisos Messini)[2] and started a new chapter in his career as coach . The academies of Kalamata were those who first opened their doors to welcome the young coach, who after several interviews and resumes, got the approval of the former president of Kalamata Stavros Papadopoulos, who was quite satisfied with the curriculum of the young coach, who had already made his own passage as coach in small groups and academies in Levski Sofia as part of his studies. In the beginning he trained the youth teams, then worked as an assistant coach in the senior teams. In the beginning of 2012–13 season George Christovassilis, president of PAS Giannina gave the opportunity to the young coach to take over for first time as head coach. Giannis Christopoulos lead the team qualified for the Greek Superleague Play-Offs.


On 17 June 2013, he signed a one-year deal with SC Tavriya Simferopol in the Ukrainian Premier League.[3]
