NEWS | Bouzoukis signs for the Phoenix

Wellington Olympic AFC U19 Star Gianni Bouzoukis has signed for ASB Premiership side the Wellington Phoenix Football Club.


The 16 year old winger had his transfer accepted last Friday, and debuted for his new club as an 88th minute substitute in their 4-3 victory against Southern United on Sunday.

Gianni for the past two seasons has been a key member of the Wellington Olympic AFC U19s side and also the Wellington Phoenix FC Academy.

Newly appointed Central League coach Besim Balicevac has praised the promotion of Bouzoukis to the Premiership side. "Gianni is an extremely talented young footballer, and I find him as a very special player. At only 16, he has a very bright future ahead of him.”

Wellington Olympic AFC is very proud to see Gianni get this opportunity and we hope he gets regular game time in the ASB Premiership.
