More or less He score as many goals as Domazos, I think He deserves at least 80 in SA, plus his DA seems low, should be higher at least 89, He was very successful in this aspect.

Real Madrid reportedly offered 35.000.000 greek drachmes(GRD)(equals with 103.000 euros), an unthinkable amount for that period. He didn't move because of the Secretary General of Sports of the then junta government who said Real's offer is a great honour but club's emblematic figures should not be sold. Something similar happened on a potential move to Everton.
