Former Kavala striker Blake Kallis says the rumours about Greek football being “corrupt and chaotic” are true after spending some time in the Greek first division.
Kallis, who now plays for Sunshine Coast FC in NPL Queensland, says he received a rude awakening when he arrived at Kavala as a 19-year-old.
“It really is how you hear about all the corruption and chaos,” Kallis said.
Kallis told Chris Appleford on FNR_Football Nation Radio’s Aussies Abroad the clubs in Greece revolve
around the president.
“It really comes down to the presidents, everything is in their hands including whether you get paid on time and looked after well,” Kallis said.
“I did hear stories of players who hadn’t been paid in three months and their accommodation wasn’t so nice,” Kallis said.
Aussies Abroad airs every Tuesday from 8pm (AEDT) hosted by Chris Appleford on FNR_Football Nation Radio.
