The pandemic may have caused havoc with the Macarthur Bulls playing schedule this month, but there’s been plenty of action on the player front.

On the plus side, the Bulls have signed striker Apostolos Giannou, who has 12 appearances for the Socceroos under his belt.

On the other side of the ledger, midfielder Antonis Martis, whose loan deal has expired, has left to rejoin his club FC Midtjylland in the Danish Superliga.

Giannou, who will join the Bulls squad for the remainder of the season, comes to Campbelltown after stints in first-tier competitions in Greece, Cyprus and China.

In his 12 appearances with Australia, Giannou (pictured) scored two goals and also has four assists to his name.

Macarthur FC head coach Ante Milicic is looking forward to working with him.

“Apostolos is an exciting addition for our squad, and I’m thrilled we have been able to secure such a valued player like him,’’ he says.

“Even though he will be joining us mid-season, I believe he will have a smooth transition into the club and onto the pitch.

“Having worked with Apostolos previously with the Socceroos, I believe he will settle in well with the squad and I look forward to working with him again.

“Not only will he be joining the Bulls, but he will also be playing for the first time in the A-League, which adds another quality international player to the competition.”

Equally excited to be joining the club and the A-League competition is Giannou himself.

“Although it is mid-season, I believe I can add my part to the club and continue its success,’’ he said.

“It’s an exciting opportunity and challenge which I’m looking forward to and I believe it will be a great stepping stone for my career.

“Now, I will look to focus on settling in the club and team and getting on the pitch to show the club what I’m made off.”
