Club career[edit]

On loan from Panathinaikos in 2007–08, Zaradoukas helped Panserraikos earned promotion from Beta Ethniki to the Greek Super League.

Following his successful season with Panserraikos, Panathinaikos loaned Zaradoukas to Ethnikos Piraeus – another strong Beta Ethniki club looking to earn promotion to the Super League – for the 2008–09 season.[1]

In September 2011, Zaradoukas was released on free transfer, due to the relegation of Olympiakos Volou for involving in match-fixing scandals and signed a 2-year contract with Olympiakos F.C.. On 29 December 2011, he signed a six-month loan deal with PAS Giannina, as he didn't feature in the plans of his coach. He scored he's first goal for Pas Giannina against Kerkyra on 4 February 2012.[2] On 18 January 2013, he signed a six-month loan with Aris. He made his debut 2 days later in home draw against AEK.

In June 2013, Zaradoukas was released from Olympiakos, and he signed a two-years contract with Asteras Tripolis. He made his debut with the club at 18 August 2013 in a home draw against PAS Giannina. At the beginning of 2014, Zaradoukas signed a six-month contract with Platanias and made his debut with the club in 3 March 2014 in a 1-2 home loss against PAS Giannina. In 10 July 2015, Zaradoukas was released from Platanias.[3]

In July 2015, Zaradoukas signed a contract with Skoda Xanthi for an undisclosed fee.[4] [5]

International career[edit]

On 10 August 2011, he debuted for the Greek national team, after a call-up by national coach Fernando Santos in a friendly match against Bosnia and Herzegovina.
