Club career


Mavrias joined Panathinaikos' youth academy in 2007, aged 13, and was promoted to the first-team squad in 2010, after signing a professional contract in the previous year. On 20 October 2010 he made his first-team – and UEFA Champions League – debut, playing the last 12 minutes of a 0–0 home draw against Rubin Kazan,[1] thus becoming the youngest Greek ever to appear in the competition, and the second youngest overall (only behind Celestine Babayaro, being surpassed later by Alen Halilović and Youri Tielemans).[2] Four days later he made his league debut, again as a substitute in a 0–1 loss at AEK.

Mavrias scored his first professional goal on 18 February 2012, netting his side's last of a 2–0 success at Ergotellis;[3] he scored his first European goal on 31 July 2012, again netted the last of a 2–0 win at Motherwell in the first leg of the third qualifying round of the Champions League, one minute after coming onto the pitch as a substitute.[4]


On 22 August 2013, Mavrias joined English Premier League side Sunderland on a three-year contract, for an undisclosed fee,[5] rumoured to be £3 million.[6] However, he was left out of the squad to play Southampton due to lack of match fitness.

Mavrias made his debut five days later, coming on as a second-half substitute in a 4–2 home success over Milton Keynes Dons, for the campaign's Football League Cup.[7] He scored his first goal on 25 January of the following year, netting the winner against Kidderminster Harriers in the fourth round of the FA Cup.[8]
