Ilias Rosidis (Greek: Ηλίας Ρωσίδης; born 1927, Greece) is a former Greek footballer who played for both Olympiacos FC and the Greek national team throughout his career.

Club career[edit]

A talented right back, Rosidis is considered a legend amongst the Olympiacos faithful. During a career that spanned almost 20 years at the Piraeus club, Rosidis captained the club during their golden era of the 1950s. From 1954 to 1959, Rosidis led the club to a then unheard of six consecutive Greek Championships. In that same period, Rosidis lifted the Greek Cup on 3 occasions, making Olympiacos the only Greek club to have won 3 doubles in a row. In total, Rosidis finished his Olympiacos career with 7 Greek Championships, 9 Cups, 5 doubles, and over 500 appearances for his club in all competitions.

International career[edit]

During the 1950s, Rosidis was also a key member of the Greece national football team.[1] He earned 29 caps during this time period.

Rossidis also played for Greece at the 1952 Olympic Games.[1][2]
