Another landmark match for Andre Vieirania at PAOK.
Specifically, in yesterday’s derby of the “Northern Doubleheader” with Aris in Toumba for the 7th matchday of the Stoiximan Super League playoffs, the iconic captain reached 300 appearances with the team in all competitions and entered the relevant “black and white” top10.

Specifically, he has the same number of matches as Giorgos Skartados, who fought for ten years with the Thessalonians. Above, in 8th and 7th place are Giorgos Toursounidis and Kyriakos Apostolidis with 313 and 315 appearances, respectively. At the top, of course, is the great one Giorgos Koudas with 565 matches with PAOK.
Vieirania, who is first foreigner in entries in team history, third foreigner in goals (49) behind Guerino and Prijovic, if he plays again next year he will become the oldest to have competed in PAOK after Kostas Chalkias who is now at the relative top.
The Portuguese’s career is divided into two terms. From 2008, when he was acquired on loan from Porto and the following season there was a move to make him permanent at the club, until 2012 when he left to play in Germany with Wolfsburg who gave 4 million euros to the “Two Head of the North” ».
His return took place in the summer of 2017 and managed to celebrate winning a championship (2019) and three Cups (2018, 2019, 2021) in 171 appearances since September 2017, even having a cruciate ligament rupture in the away match against AEL.
