He returned to action one year later and went on to play for 3,5 years for Panionios, earning the reputation of being one of the best left-backs in the Greek championship.

Chievo Verona. Spyropoulos said: "I'm here too to play my part. I'll try to settle in as quickly as possible, to help Chievo reach their target. I'm a defender but I can play in many positions and I like attacking play. I thank Chievo for giving me the chance to play in Italy. I'll do my best to repay the trust of the chairman and the club." He made two appearances for the club before missing the remainder of the season through injury.


An announcement on PAOK’s official Twitter profile confirmed the acquisition of Spyropoulos, who spent the last six months in Italy with Chievo Verona after leaving Panathinaikos during last January’s transfer window.No financial details of Spyropoulos’ contract or terms were revealed by the club, but the Greek international will join the first team for its training camp in Austria starting on Monday. He made his debut with the club in December 2013 in a 2-0 away win against PAS Giannina. On 15 April 2015, his contract was terminated.
