Samaris

A defensive midfielder native from Greece, country for which he is an International, he was champion at Benfica in his first season. He represents the club since the 2014/15 season

When Samaris arrived at Benfica, on August 22nd, 2014, the Greece international had recently won the Greek league title

and had made his best season playing for

Olympiacos

, in which he scored four goals.
He arrived labelled as a more technical-ball playing midfielder, but he quickly adapted to other roles in the team. Since he began his professional career, in 2006, at the humble

Panachaiki

, he has been stepping up to the limelight, starting as an offensive midfielder to end up stepping back in the pitch, as he began representing bigger clubs.
In 2010, he signed

Panionios

and he drew so much attention that 2012 he was signed by

Olympiacos

, that, even so, let him play for another season at Panionios, on loan. But it was in 2013/14 that he established himself as one of the most promising talent of Greek football. Next

he moved to Benfica and in three consecutive seasons he helped the team win the national title, a Portuguese Cup, two Super Cups and two League Cups.
