Question by Vassilis Tsakiridis
You have played for several clubs located in islands. How did you manage this? Is it just a coincidence? Have you ever thought about it?
I think that it's just a coincidence! I started my professional football career in Mytilene playing for Eolikos, given that this is where I come from. After 3 years, I went to OFI, I spent another 3 years there and then I returned to my island again to play for Kalloni. After another 5 years, I returned to Crete again and more specifically Chania to play for Platanias. I did not try to go to an island, it was just a coincidence!
Question by Eleftherios Kordatzis
You are at your best "football" age and your statistics are quite good this season. If someone told you that next season you would play for a foreign club in the country's 1st national division, which championship would you prefer? Are you fond of a particular club?
If there was a proposal to play abroad, then I would prefer to go to Spain! I like it a lot! And no, I haven't thought about a particular club.
Question by Vangelis Petrakis
Would you wish to remain in Platanias next season as well?
I have a contract with Platanias for another year and I am very happy I came to this club. But even if my contract expired, I would still wish to remain in the club!
Question by Dimitris Karapanos
What is your dream as a footballer?
My dream as a footballer was, is and always will be for God to help me play for the National Team!
You are just 2 points shy of the positions leading to the play-offs. Do you believe that this is a feasible goal? Is it something you are talking about?
It's not a feasible goal but it's not impossible either! We have a difficult schedule ahead of us, but we seem to be thriving in difficulties! We keep the thought in the back of our heads. I believe that with some luck, we may achieve something positive!
In which match did you have your best display and why?
I believe it was the match against Panionios. Although we fell behind in the score early in the game, I scored a goal and we managed to tie the game at 1-1 and thus achieve a positive result. It was a difficult match.
What are your hobbies?
I like spending my spare time with my children and my wife. We go for a coffee or to the playground!
What would you like to say to the fans and supporters of Platanias?
We thank them very much for their support and we want to them make even prouder and I hope to achieve it!
Question by Stavros Georgovrettakos
If you were given the opportunity to play for Olympiacos, PAOK, AEK or Panathinaikos, which club would you choose and why?
This is a difficult question… I would go to the club that would want me the most!
