Stergios Fotopoulos

Performance Coach

  • Date Joined: 23rd April 2021
I am a forward-thinking and highly ambitious Performance Coach who has cultivated an impressive portfolio of achievements and experience within elite professional football through my roles in Russia, Ukraine, Greece, Cyprus and Belarus.
