Apollo: Malekkidis 2.0

Must read

The Cypriot fullback at his best!

Απoλλων: Μαλεκκiδης 2.0

Is anyone who continues to doubt that hard work doesn't pay off? If so, then let's take a look at the career of Giorgos Malekkidis, who tends to turn into an ideal example of what it is to never give up.

He was acquired by Apollon in the summer of 2020, with the rationale that he can play in 5-6 different positions and that since we are talking about Cyprus… data, he would add depth to the roster.

He was immediately loaned out. in Karmiotissa, where playing mainly as a left back he left an excellent impression, as a result of which in January 2021 he returned prematurely to Kolossi.

He made his debut with the “blue and white” on January 30, 2021 in a home derby against APOEL and although he started his career satisfactorily in the Limassol team… he showed much more maturity under Alexander Zorniger.

He may have made only six appearances under the German's instructions, but in the 90th minute against Omonia in the GSP (17/10/2021)… and despite the defeat, he showed that with Roberges by his side he could provide important help when needed. However, the great misfortune occurred with his serious injury that kept him out for over a year.

His reappearance on the playing fields took place in February 2022 with the shirt of New Salamina. The “red and whites” gave him the opportunity to return to action, with Savvas Poursaitidis using him either as a stopper, or as a left back… and him constantly raising the stakes.

Slowly coming to today, last summer his stay in Apollo was constantly one of the biggest question marks… In the end, however, he not only stayed, but with patience and persistence managed to shout a thunderous presence when he had to fill the void of both Yurcevic in left end, as well as that of Pipernes in the stoppers.

So far, he has made ten appearances, two goals and one assist, with the most important thing being the maturity he shows. Clearly improved, the 26-year-old left-footed defender, who has stabilized the way he defends to a very large extent, manages to become dangerous whenever he goes up to the opponent's third (see goals with AEL), at the same time that his passion… stands out like few in the “blue and whites” ».

On Pablo Macin and with the Slovenian on the pitch, “Male” looks determined to finally establish himself at the left end of Apollo's defense (he played as a starter in this position in the two matches with the Spaniard). What remains to be seen is whether the experienced technician decides to reward the new version of the Cypriot back, anointing the basic unit, regardless of Jurcevic's condition!
