Iraklis[edit]

Pitu joined Iraklis on loan during the summer of 2007. He made his league debut for his new club in a match against Atromitos for the fifth round of the 2007-08 season, as he replaced Giannis Papadopoulos in the 56th minute of the match.[1] He continued to appear regularly for the club until the end of the season and he even managed to score his first goal for Iraklis, in a match against OFI.[2] It was a crucial, match deciding, goal, scored in the injury time of the match, disengaging Iraklis from the relegation battle.[2] In the end of the season he counted 1 goal out of 20 league appearances.

Aris[edit]

On 31 August 2009 Pitu signed for Aris on a free transfer.[3] He made his debut for Aris in an 1-1 away draw against Panthrakikos, as he replaced his teammate Neto in the 76th minute.[4] Pitu scored his only goal for Aris in a cup match against Aspropyrgos.[5] He contributed in Aris' campaign as, in a match against AEL, he hit the corner by which his teammate Sebastian Abreu scored the equaliser for his team.[6] He managed to appear in total of 10 matches for Aris before being released by the club on 1 February 2010.[7]

Iraklis[edit]

On the very same day of his release Pitu signed a contract with former cub Iraklis.[8] The debut in this second spell for Iraklis was made in a local derby match against PAOK that ended 1-1.[9] Until the end of the season he featured in a total of ten games for Iraklis.

Atromitos[edit]

Following the Iraklis's relegation, he joined Greek First Division side Atromitos on 29 June 2011, signing a two-year contract.[10]
