Noé Acosta Rivera (born 10 December 1983) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Greek club PAS Giannina F.C. as a left midfielder.

Safe for one year in Romania with Universitatea Cluj, he spent his entire professional career in Greece, mainly with PAS Giannina.

Football career[edit]


Acosta was born in Guadalajara, Castile-La Mancha. In his country, the Real Madrid youth graduate played exclusively in the lower leagues.

Acosta started in 2002 with CD Colonia Moscardó, going on to represent Atlético Madrid C, Real Murcia Imperial, RSD Alcalá – his only Segunda División B experience, suffering team relegation at the end of the 2005–06 seasonUD Almería B and Motril CF.[1]


Acosta moved abroad in January 2010, signing with FC Universitatea Cluj from Romania. He helped them promote to Liga I, contributing with 14 games and two goals to the feat.

In his second year, Acosta appeared in ten matches as his team finished in eighth position, two points ahead of neighbouring CFR Cluj. This marked his first top flight experience, at the age of 26.


Again in the January transfer window, free agent Acosta moved to Greece in 2011, starting with Olympiacos Volou 1937 FC.[2] He still competed in the 2011–12 UEFA Europa League with the side, scoring in a 3–0 away win against FC Differdange 03 for the third qualifying round, but moved in September to fellow Superleague club Aris Thessaloniki FC.

Acosta competed in both Greek major levels in the following years, representing Levadiakos FC, Olympiakos Volou and PAS Giannina FC. On 25 August 2015 he renewed his contract with the latter until 2017, for an undisclosed fee. [3]
