Greek striker, Dimitris Salpingidis, scorer of the country’s first ever World Cup goal, has returned to PAOK Thessaloniki FC after a gap of four years. The 28 year old striker left PAOK to join Panathinaikos in 2006 and was in search of a new club after the Athens based outfit decided not to extend his contract this summer.
Salpingidis has put pen to paper a four year deal with PAOK. Between 1999 and 2006, Salpingidis made over 100 appearances for PAOK before transferring for €1.8m + three players to Panathinaikos.
Salpingidis, who scored Greece’s first ever World Cup goal against Nigeria, also scored the goal against Ukraine that sent Otto Rehhagel’s men to South Africa.
