Kyriakos Papadopoulos ‒ Hamburger SV

Recommended Posts

It is being reported by Sport24 and according to several German sources, that he is on his way out of Hamburg, who have been relegated to 2.Bundesliga. Apparently FC Krasnodar is pursuing him closely; They finished 4th in the Russian Premier League last season.

Reports are now indicating that KPap will undergo yet another knee surgery that will keep him out for the next 5 months. He will remain with relegated Hamburg. This could be the beginning of the end for a player who was once one of the more promising Greeks of his generation. Sad.

Has anyone realised this player has been injury prone since 2012. That’s 7 years of him being in and out of action. Also during that time he had very serious injuries with his knees and slowed him down a lot. 

Does anyone know what’s up with him now??

He was a sure bet with Sokratis/Manolas quality but injuries decimated his career.

When is he not injured? lol This is not  guy you can rely on going forward his ability to stay healthy for long periods of time has hindered his career. If he's healthy come time when the NT is in the qualifiers fine call him up as a bench option but you cant rely on him to be in your starting 11..

That’s true we do have better. But I believe he can be an asset to the team when available.

He is a true asset. If healthy and in form, I'd go as far as saying he could battle Sokratis and Manolas for a spot. I truly believe that.

What happens when someone is often injured is that, when healthy, it's that much harder to regain 1. form, 2. confidence in yourself and 3. the confidence of your manager. The more you get injured that deeper the hole you start from every single time.

Kyriakos finally injury free for the first time this season and getting is first minutes of the season. He played the full 90 of the Polkal quarter final against fellow 2nd division side Paderborn. Hamburger won 2-0 and are through to the semi finals. Hopefully he can stay injury free for the rest of the season, help his side to whats looking like promotion and a cup final potentially and get his career back on track.

According to reports, out of Hamburg, trial in China, didn't work out, back to Europe, interest from Russia. Biggest failed talent in Greek football history?

In his case though, it wasn't his fault for lack of trying.  He was/is injury prone. Always hustled and tried.

For me it's Ninis by some way but Paps is up there, maybe number 2
