Olympiacos Melbourne Football Philanthropy would like to introduce our European representative, who is present at our Male – Free Euro Pro Scoutcamp.

Sergei Kundik, is a retired professional European football player with an extensive European playing history. Originally from Russia, Sergei played at a Russian soccer tournament where he was identified as the best player in the tournament. Here, he was awarded a professional contract at the age of 9 with FC Porto in Portugal. Sergei’s family were offered a place to live, as well as a work arrangement for his parents. Sergei and his family accepted the offer and they all moved to Portugal.

Sergei continued to train and play at FC Porto’s and Bragas academy teams for a number of years, where he played alongside team mates such as Bruno Fernandes (Manchester United, Portuguese National Team) and Jose Sa (Wolverhampton, Portuguese National Team).

From there, Sergei continued to play with clubs such as Rangers FC, Anagennisi Deryneia FC and Doxa Katokopias FC in Cyprus, APS Zakynthos and Panegialios Greece and Laval United in Dubai.

Plagued by a number of injuries, Sergei was unable to retain the long career he wished he could have. Through the network he built, and the strong reputation he has as a player assessor, as well as his integrity, he has now made it his aim to assist the next generation of players.

Sergei learned about the football philanthropy, including how we help struggling families to get their kids back into sport. He admired how we are still actively looking to further reduce our costs to also help homeless families also. He understood that, as a philanthropic endeavour, we are here to help the kids first and foremost. After creating a place of refuge for the kids, the skills of the players improves to the extend that they themselves decide to pursue a higher level of soccer.

After seeing the consistency of results created by this football philanthropy, Sergei decided to become our European representative.

Sergei continues to work with us to provide any additional information we add to our philanthropy to give everyone an equal opportunity to getting scouted to Europe. Sergei’s European playing experience is invaluable. His integrity and reputation is also very high, whereby allowing him to retain relationships with some of the technical directors, coaches and presidents of many of Europes top clubs, giving all players at this scout camp access to opportunities most couldn’t afford.
