Karagounis could stay at Panathinaikos
- Updated: August 4, 2012
The saga involving Panathinaikos talisman Giorgos Karagounis has taken a twist, with the Greece international reportedly reconsidering his decision to leave the club.
Earlier this week Karagounis stated he would not be renewing his contract with the Athenian outfit, for whom he has made over 200 appearances in two separate spells.
Karagounis has spent ten years at the club and news of his imminent departure made headlines in Greece.
However, a telephone conversation with Panathinaiki Alliance leader Yiannis Alafouzos has convinced the player to at least delay his decision until after Panathinaikos’ UEFA Cahmpions League qualifier with Motherwell next week.
Alafouzos has taken to Twitter to confirm that the issue of Karagounis’ future is “open” to the club and that he hopes to “find a solution that recognizes his contribution” to the club.
Under Portuguese manager Jesualdo Ferreira, Karagounis has found himself as something of a peripheral figure of the first-team squad, though he captained Greece at Euro 2012.
