Spyros Stefanidis (Greek: Σπύρος Στεφανίδης; born 18 December 1946) is a Greek former football player who played as a defender.

Club career

Stefanidis started his career in 1966 at Panserraikos and played in every position in the defence, winning the second division league in his group, as well as the promotion to the first division, in 1972. In the summer of 1973 and AEK was trying in every way to secure the signature of Sakis Zarzopoulos from Panserraikos. The president of the yellow-blacks, Giannis Theodorakopoulos, in order to outbid the proposal of Olympiacos, he submitted a proposal for Stefanidis, as well.[2][3] Nevertheless, Stefanidis ultimately proved to be a very useful alternative to the team's defensive line. He remained at AEK for three seasons, and in the summer of 1977 he left as he had lost his position in the roster of the club, after František Fadrhonc relocated Lakis Nikolaou as a center-back, Petros Ravousis had matured and showed very good elements, the transferr of Babis Intzoglou from Panionios, as well as the presece of Stefanos Theodoridis and Giorgos Skrekis in the defensive line of the team. Stefanidis signed at Atromitos and after he team was relegated in the summer of 1977, he played in the second division for two more seasons, before retiring at the age of 32.[4]
