Nikos Karelis ‒ KRC Genk

Recommended Posts

that's a bad injury for any player...especially one who depends on speed. poor guy. who takes his place for the NT now?

At this point, we need to improve the potency of our midfield, no matter who plays as a forward. Speaking strictly as pecking order, Vellios has the elements.

Karelis scored his first goal after coming back from his injury, earning a point as it was the equalizer against current number 2 Charleroi. Maybe this helps his club to climb some places on the table as they have a bad season at #9 (23 points behind leader Club Bruges).

Karelis had a goal and an assist in Genk's 3 - 1 victory over Zulte-Waregem. Seems he's regaining his form...good news for the NT

Highlights :

glad that he's picking up form. some people were concerned that he'd never be the same after the kind of injury he got.

He gave an assist yesterday against Gent (1-2 home loss) in the last round of Jupiler Pro League. All in all he scored four times and gave three assists in 14 games for Racing Genk. Thats not bad.

Other Greeks who play in the same championship: Marinos started as Charleroi lost to Kortrijk (2-0). His team finished third. He missed only one game in the whole year and gave four assists. He should have been called up to the NT considering that he has been in top form in the last 10 months or so. Kitsiou was in the starting XI of Sint-Truiden as they lost at home (0-1), Goutas came off from the bench, Charisis was not even on the bench. Galitsios signed recently for Mouscron. He played four games in the season, they lost all of those games. This time he was on the bench as they lost to Eupen (4-0). His team finished 14th, they just avoided relegation. Kolovos played 12 games for Mechelen (no assists or goals, does anybody remember how he was considered a white hope for the future?). They finished last and got thus relegated. Koutroubis went recently to Standard Liege. He played four games and they didnt lose any of them.

Thanks for the rundown. That could also fit nicely into the ''Other Greek Abroad'' thread which concentrates on lower profile players outside Greece.

Yes he was, and we have a lot of Kolovos now (Limnios, Manthatis, Androutsos and so on).

Interesting picks.

Limnios needs a lot of work still. Manthatis, I actually liked what I saw of him at OSFP, haven’t seen much of him at PAS.

Need to see more of Androutsos, I see Ninis in him so I hope he makes the right decisions

Androutsos should play more because he has something special. His defensive work has always been good. He also hood in attack and has nice passes. He does remind of Ninis in a way but Androutsos is better defensively and is more aggressive. 

Manthatis time will come. He plays well for PAS and has a few assists to his name. Can he do better ofcourse. I'd like to see him in the national team soon. 

Limnios is better than the top 2. Very fast, good dribbling, flair and smart. He needs to more game time to prove himself and I believe he will be our star winger soon enough. 

Lazaros Lamprou and Tasos Chatzigiovannis are also in and coming wing players that are from the PAO youth setup. They also have great potential. If all these player can live up to expectations in the next 2 years then we will have good depth on the wing and attacking midfield.
