Pantelis Hatzidiakos ‒ AZ Alkmaar

Recommended Posts

Pantelis Hatzidiakos or sometimes spelled Chatzidiakos is a central defender whom has just turned 19 years (DOB 18/1/97) & is with AZ Alkmaar where he made his Eredivisie debut in a 2-1 away loss againt PEC Zwolle as a 70' minute substitute on 13 December 2015. I think Pantelis Hatzidiakos was a Panathinaikos junior.

Noone knows , doubt anyone follows Alkmaar's youth games. He s only played one game with the top team and I think he went in as a sub. Also he has two nationalities , Netherlands too  can play him. Generally , Netherlands have it hard with Defenders, so Im pretty sure if he is anything decent it might be a lost cause.

I didn't know he existed until AZ Alkmaar's win away to Roda JC last weekend. Being a Greek-Australian I was looking to see how the three Australians were doing at Roda JC until I noticed Pantelis Hatzidiakos with a Greek flag next to his name playing for AZ Alkmaar.

A decent picture of him for you guys outside The Netherlands who don't see him on TV on a regular basis.

Greek-Dutch teenager defender Pantelis Hatzidiakos played the full match for AZ Alkmaar going down 2-4 at home to PSV in overnight Dutch Eredivisie action.

Hatzidiakos scored the second goal in AZ Alkmaar’s 0-2 win at VVV Venlo. AZ is currently second in the Dutch Eredivisie.

Here is the goal. Quality is rather poor:

he's already better than some tzavellas/koutroubis/kolovetsios yet he's getting ignored even in the u21 squad.

He ll probably be a regular call up soon enough.

Alkmaar are having their best season since they last joined the CL in 2010. They won the league then too.

 

I do not rate the Netherlands League any more than the Greek one anymore. At least the top 10 teams we have in total are better than theirs. Ajax and Eindhoven are probably slightly better than Olympiakos , Aek , Paok but the rest teams are nothing very significant.

Reminder that Ajagun was a regular when he was loaned there from Pao, and he was having like 30 minutes/month in the GSL.

However, seeing players like Tsimikas and Hantzidiakos  at this age be regulars in that league is probably good because big teams buy  promising teens from this League like crazy.

Reminder that Manolas first game with the NT was at the age of 22+ and Pantelis is still only 20.

Sokratis was first called up at 20 and Retsos at 19 and I expect to Retsos nothing less than a similar career to Sokratis.

I don't think he needs to be called up. With Retsos and Siovas as backups to our 3 centrebacks he is not needed. I believe Retsos will have a better career than Sokratis. His market value is already at 18million and he's still 19. With his value he should always be in the national team.

18 million now is probably the price of Sokratis back then when goign to Milan or Werder.

Mbappe and Neymar reaching 200+ mill but Honest opinion, they re not even gonna be close to what Ronaldo is.

The money are nothing currently. Teams are spending too much. He sure looks like he ll be an elite CB  though.

Skibbe doesn't even call up Siovas to begin with so why not calling up Hatzidiakos instead of Kolovetsios and Koutroubis?

But how good is he? I don't watch the Dutch League so I can't say if he is worth being in the team. All I know is we have Retsos, Sokratis, Papadopoulos and Manolas. Unless Skibbe will experiment like he has said.

Hadzidiakos and AZ Alkmaar extended the existing contract with one year (from 2020 to 2021). No details about his salary were revealed.

Hatzidiakos is just a few minutes away from the Dutch Cupfinal. They are leading 4-0 against FCTwente. 

He is playing very decent as AZ does as a whole. AZ Alkmaar has the second best defence in The Dutch Eredivisie (24 conceeded in 25 games)

Getting lots of experience on a decent club (currently 3rd) in a pretty good dutch league. Too bad there is a log jam in the CB position for Greece.

Can he play right back aswell?

Even if he can, we don`t need to force feed players positions anymore. Right now, we already have Retsos that is a CB and can play RB, and he is much better than Hatzidiakos. Vs Croatia, we had Maniatis, Zeca and Retsos playing out of position, and although 2/3 fared pretty well individually, all things considered, the team was in shambles. This isnt a sustainable solution and we need to start developing and playing guys in their natural positions.

All that said, in Retsos' case, if he is truly our best option at RB right now, then he should start in that position, also considering he has three bulls in front of him in the CB pecking order. He is an exception rather than the rule.
