Sotiris Leontiou, born on July 17, 1984 in Ioannina, Greece is a Greek central midfielder that can also play as a left full back.

Career

He started his playing carrier when he was a teenager in the Panathinaikos F.C. Academies. After spending some years in Panathinaikos as an amateur he was finally given a chance to prove his worth as he was given on loan to FC Marko Markopoulo for 2 seasons (2001–2003). While playing for FC Marko he played a total of 38 league matches and scored 11 goals. In the 04/05 season he was given again on loan, this time in Proodeftiki FC and played 26 matches and scored 2 goals.

At the beginning of the 05/06 season, he returned to Panathinaikos F.C. first team where he signed a new 5 year contract and became an integral part of the team in the Greek Superleague. Unfortunately torn ligament injury sidelined him for two full seasons. He returned in training around January 2009 but he failed to appear in any games.

At his 1 year loan spell in Kavala FC in 09-10, he managed to earn his first cap against PAOK FC, playing for 9 minutes. He returned at the end of the 09/10 season on the Panathinaikos F.C. roster and was again loaned at Ilioupoli F.C. for the 2010–2011 season.
