“If there is no path, we will make one.” 

Years ago, when I was an active referee during a time when the problems in Greek refereeing were numerous and unsolved—as they still are to this day—someone, not from the sports world, told me: “The Carthaginian general Hannibal once said that if there is no path, we will make one.” This not only impressed me but it also paved the way for my thoughts, my life, and my refereeing career. I fought hard and believe I managed to pave the way in refereeing.

I have been enjoying this for many years in Romania, where they trusted me. I don’t know why not in Greece. But… I probably do know. In this autobiography, I reveal everything. Everything a football-fan reader would want to know. I haven’t kept anything back.

And because in Greece, the problems in refereeing have remained unsolved for decades due to the prevailing belief that there is no way forward, I tell you directly through this book that all it takes is your will to pave the way. 

You will learn everything about me. I owe it to all those who have followed my journey. Events and secrets that have never been brought to light. And for the first time, the reader may learn unknown aspects of the world’s football stars.

I walked with them and got to know them, both their good and their bad sides. Who is Cristiano Ronaldo from a referee’s perspective? Who is Messi, Beckham, Ronaldinho, Rooney and so many others with whom we met on the field—at Camp Nou, Old Trafford, Stamford Bridge, Bernabeu?
