Greek “guns” in the Netherlands PlanetFootball – Tributes



Nikos machlas
For his sake, Dutch fans danced in the stands after each goal. In 1996, the Greek forward was transferred from OFI to Fitesse and did not immediately adapt to the requirements of Dutch football and had a mediocre first year. However, in the 1997-98 season, Mahlas made the whole of Europe talk about his success. He scored 34 goals in Eredivisie and won the “Golden Boot”. In 1999, Ajax set a transfer record ($ 8.6 million) to buy it. Their numbers may not be that impressive, but in his three years Mahlas has always had double digit goals in the league. He won a double win in 2002, scoring a total of more than 100 goals in all competitions in his six years in the Netherlands.

Giannis Anastasiou
The Anderlecht shirt was the “passport” of his transfer to the Dutchman Ronda in 2000. The Greek striker was impressive in his first season and with 19 goals scored his team in fourth place and debut in the UEFA Cup. Over the next two years, Anastasiou became Ronda’s top scorer in all competitions, and transferred to Ajax in January 2004, making a decisive contribution to winning the league that season. He remained in “Aiada” until 2006, his last appearance in Eredivisie was a year with Sparta Rotterdam.

George samaras
The current vice president of OFI left Crete at a young age to join Heerenveen academies. Samaras’s football bases entered the Netherlands and began to impress with their abilities before they were even adults. At the age of 17, he was promoted to the club’s first team in 2002 and scored three goals in his first four games (all as a change). Heerenveen extended his contract early and Samaras quickly became a key player. The highlight of the season at Eredivisie was 2004-05, when he scored 11 goals and became the team’s second top scorer after the Hundelar.

Angelos charisteas
In January 2005, a few months after his decisive contribution in winning the Euro, he was transferred from Greek forward Werder Bremen to Ajax. He met Giannis Anastasiou in Amsterdam and became our third citizen (after Mahlas) to play in the team. Angelos Charisteas stayed until the summer of 2006 in “Aiada” and finished the season with double-digit goals. The arrival of Henk Ten Cate as technical leadership brought the Greek to the exit door soon after Ajax signed his hated rival, Feyenoord. Despite the face of some of the fans, Charisteas stayed in Rotterdam for one season and actually became the team’s top scorer in all competitions.

Vangelis Pavlidis
He is a member of the new generation Greek forward and makes his debut in September 2019 with our national team. John Fanta Schip, an excellent Dutch football expert, “checked” Pavlidis from his presence in Willem. He was gone a few months ago. Despite his young age, he is a benchmark on the offensive line for the Greek forward team. Last season, he was Willem’s top scorer with 13 goals, and this year he became the first “ball” with 5 goals in the league and 2 goals in the Europa League.
