One of the better goalkeepers in Greek soccer, Nikos Christidis (born September 18,1944) played with the teams of Aris and AEK. He was capped 26 times by the Greek National Football Team in his career.
He later went to work as the coach for the Greek Under-21 National Football Team.
Nikos Christidis then served as an interim coach for the Greek National Football Team -- one game only. The game was a friendly between Greece - Russia 0-0 (Luzhniki Stadium, Moscow, Aug. 15, 2001). Otto Rehhagel succeeded him as the coach for the Greek National Football Team.
