Greek marquee signing Panagiotis Kone leaves Western United




Former Greek international and marquee A-League signing Panagiotis Kone has departed Western United FC, effective immediately.

The midfielder signed a two-year contract with the newly-formed Melbourne club, yet made only 15 appearances in his first season before departing.

The club thanks Panagiotis for his contributions on and off the pitch in our inaugural season,” Western United CEO Chris Pehlivanis said.

“We wish him all the best in his future, whether that be in football or other endeavours.

“He will forever be part of the club’s history as the first-ever signing.”

The former AEK Athens player made 15 appearances for the Green and Black in the 2019/20 A-League season, scoring two goals, including the club’s first-ever home goal against Perth Glory in round 2.

Kone took the chance to thank the club before he flew home to Greece, leaving a sizeable whole in Western United’s midfield.

“I want to thank Western United for giving me the opportunity to be part of this club,” Kone said.

“I wish the best of luck to all the players, staff and members. Stay Safe!”

The A-League season resumes this Friday but United will not feature in the opening weekend as the three Melbourne clubs are working through their 14-day quarantine.
