Giorgos Tzavellas

Clubs: Kerkyra FC, Panionios GSS, Eintracht Frankfurt, AS Monaco FC, PAOK FC. 

• Born in Athens, he started his career on the holiday island of Corfu with Kerkyra FC, making 13 appearances in the 2006/07 Super League and scoring one goal – in a 4-3 away win against fellow islanders OFI Crete FC.

• Relegated with Kerkyra FC, he stayed on to play for the club in the second division but moved back to Athens in summer 2008 to join Panionios.

• A promising first campaign was followed by an excellent second, which earned him recognition by Greece boss Otto Rehhagel – though no first cap – and an end-of-season transfer to German club Eintracht Frankfurt.

• Made 25 Bundesliga starts for Eintracht, scoring one goal, but was unable to save the team from relegation; remained with them for half a season in the second division before switching in January to Ligue 2 outfit AS Monaco FC.

• Won his first cap for Greece in a UEFA EURO 2012 qualifier against Croatia in Zagreb on 7 September 2010 (0-0) and followed that up with further qualifying appearances against Latvia (1-0) and Malta (1-0).

• Helped Monaco back into Ligue 1, scoring twice in 24 appearances during their promotion season before switching back to his homeland and signing a two-year contract with PAOK FC. Played four times in the group stage as the club qualified for the knockout phase of the 2013/14 UEFA Europa League.
