Player Profile

The holding midfielder forms an experienced partnership with Georgios Karagounis for Greece. The pair helped Panathinaikos win the league and cup double in 2008/09.

Katsouranis returned to Greece last summer, joining boyhood club Panathinaikos after three successful years with Portuguese giants Benfica, where he played in the Champions League. Despite his defensive role, he can be dangerous from set pieces and has a reasonable goalscoring record - he scored 10 times in league and cup this season.

He made his top-flight debut for Panahaiki aged 17, scoring on his debut. He moved on to AEK Athens in 2002.
