MightyTips - one of the leading platforms for betting tips - announces player sponsorship agreement with Dimitrios Goutas.
The world's most extensive betting site guide has announced a player sponsorship agreement with Cardiff City and their highly-rated centre-back Dimitrios Goutas.
It's another move by the MightyTips team to strengthen our presence in the professional football space and broaden the exposure of our industry-leading services.
Dimitrios Goutas becomes the second Championship player sponsored by MightyTips in 2023/03 after Blackburn Rovers captain Lewis Travis.
MightyTips Communications and Marketing Manager Eugene Ravdin said: "Dimitrios Goutas is a classic centre-back with a wealth of European experience. We hope to see him cement a place in the Cardiff City starting XI over the coming season and that our association with such a reliable player helps us build a solid media image with our potential customers in the UK. We will be keeping our fingers crossed for him this season."
MightyTips is looking forward to following the Goutas's career and providing its readers with lists of top football betting sites for them to place bets on the footballer, should they wish to do so. So if you're looking for an UK betting company for some betting action, we've got you covered.
Standing at an imposing 1.93m and boasting a lean athletic figure, Goutas catches the eye before setting foot on a pitch.
The Bluebirds signed the Greek international this summer, picking him up on a free transfer in what could prove to be one of the bargains of the summer window.
His career began at Xanthi FC, where he became a regular fixture for the now-troubled Greek side, which recently had to resign from the Greek Super Lig 2 due to financial difficulties. He made 77 appearances in three seasons, and his excellent form attracted the interest of Olympiacos, who parted with €800,000 to secure his services in the summer of 2015.
He was immediately loaned back to Xanthi in 2016, and a further three loan deals followed as he tried to find regular playing time. He spent time with Belgian First Division clubs Kortrijk and Sint-Truiden before signing for Polish giants Lech Poznan for a season-long loan in 2018.
His most solid run of form came with Svissapor, where he made 63 appearances and bagged five goals - a good return for a defender.
It's a massive season for Cardiff - the signing of Welsh superstar Aaron Ramsey on a free transfer filling fans with hope of a successful season.
New Cardiff boss Erol Bulut believes Goutas has the characteristics needed to succeed in Wales.
He said: "Dimitri has a lot of experience. He has played for Olympiacos and the Greek national team. He can organise from the back and he is a good size for the Championship. He also has good speed, so I think he will be a very useful player for our style."
Goutas was thrown right in the deep end on debut, making his first start for his new club against Leeds at a boisterous Elland Road in the opening weekend of the Championship season.
He impressed and almost helped his team to a surprise victory away from home - only a last-gasp Crysencio Summerville equaliser prevented them from taking three points back down the M1.
Cardiff City Football Club, a beacon of Welsh pride, was founded in 1899 as Riverside A.F.C. by Bartley Wilson. They adopted their current name in 1908 and climbed the tiers of British football, gracing the First Division in 1921. The Bluebirds experienced their golden era in the 1920s, notably winning the FA Cup in 1927 - a feat unequalled by any other non-English club. Despite ups and downs, including periods in lower divisions, the indomitable spirit of Cardiff City sustains them, echoing the passion of their vehement supporters.
