It’s the end of an era.
After nine years of selfless offering to Apollon FC and nineteen years in football, George Vassiliou says his goodbye.
George served in Apollon from 2012 after he got transferred from Aris Limassol.
From then until today, Apollon grew up with him and established itself in the top teams of Cyprus, carving huge successes in the history of our team one after the other.
The fact that since the day he came to Apollon, our team has been competing uninterruptedly in European competitions, shows the importance of George presence in the team.The distinctions, the titles, the joys, the sorrows and dozens of other emotions experienced by the international left back, have not been experienced by many footballers.
After 228 appearances, three winning cups, two Super Cups, four qualifiers in UEFA Europa League groups, great and unforgettable nights which honored the Apollon jersey in all the stadiums of Cyprus and Europe, George Vassilios says goodbye to the Legend and football full of experiences and distinctions.
His passion and soul deposit in every football game was his trademark. There is not a single fan of any team who does not recognize this element of his character. Everyone, but all his teammates, past and present, have the best to say about the 36-year-old Vassiliou.
A loyal soldier says goodbye to football, to Apollon and to thousands of his friends.Our leader for many years is rightly in the pantheon of the history of our team and won with his place in the heart of all the Apollonistes.
George Vassiliou, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything you offered to Apollon for the passion, honesty, self-denial and respect you showed while fighting with the historical emblem of our association.
We wish you health and all the best in your personal life.
