Tsiggaras pens new contract
PAOK FC announces that the club has agreed a contract renewal with Haris Tsiggaras up until 2022.
The investment in the future of the club continues. Yet another product of the PAOK Academy has signed a new contract with the Double-headed Eagle.
And the reason is because Haris Tsiggaras, who has been included in the first team squad for the second season running, has been working hard day in and day out, waiting for his opportunity for playing time.
Since joining PAOK in 2010, Tsiggaras, born on August 20, 2000, opted to make the PAOK Academy house his home after years of clocking up the kilometers with his road trips from his home town of Portaria, Halkidiki.
Tsiggaras was and is a disciplined and persistent character. A smart and extremely capable defensive midfielder, he is able to help his team in both defence and attack. A humble and hard worker in training as well as on the pitch, he quickly found his way to his dream. One of the influential figures in the Under-15 title-winning side of the 2014-15 season, and a champion in the 2015-16 season with the Under-17s, he also won the title with the Under-19s in three consecutive seasons (2017-18, 2018-19, 2019-20). He was also a key player during the Under-19s UEFA Youth League campaigns, and of course has represented Greece at every youth level.
In the summer of 2019, he joined up with the first team squad for pre-season training, and played in the friendly against FC Zwolle, and continued to work with consistency and patience, but also with an obvious development, which did not go unnoticed by former coach Abel Ferreira during the 2020 pre-season. He played for the senior side for the first time in June 2020 against Aris, coming off the bench in the 86th minute.
Tsiggaras is also enrolled at the School of Management, Economics and Communication of Thessaloniki.
