Georgatos quits AEK

Grigorios Georgatos has left AEK Athens FC after the club agreed to terminate the midfield player's contract.

Deteriorating relationship
Georgatos joined AEK in summer 2002 and enjoyed a fine first season, playing 23 games in the Alpha Ethniki and four times in the UEFA Champions League. However, the 31-year old's relationship with coach Dusan Bajevic has reportedly deteriorated and he had been seeking his release for the past two weeks.

Olympiacos return
A former Greek international who was signed by Internazionale FC to replace Roberto Carlos in 1999, Georgatos has been tipped to return for a third spell with Olympiacos CFP, the Greek champions.
