Olympiacos: Costas Karapatis died


Greek football is poorer now, as Costas Karapatis, who was considered one of the best goalkeepers of his time, passed away at the age of 93.

The deceased was born on December 31, 1929 in Thessaloniki and his first steps in the field of football in Atromitos Kamaras, a local team in Thessaloniki.

A few years later he signed his first professional contract with Hercules, in which he remained until 1951.

The next stop in his great career was Olympiakos, in which he played until 1957, counting in his six years in the team of Piraeus five championships and four Cups.

After leaving the “red and whites” he returned to Hercules, where he remained for the next four years.

It is worth noting that he had recorded a participation with our National football team, while he had also sat on the bench of our representative team also for a game.
