AEK announce UEFA Europa League roster
AEK announced their 23-man roster for the UEFA Europa League knockout stages. New signing Niklas Hult was left out.
The roster registered with UEFA includes 23 first team players and five B team players. New signing from Panathinaikos, Niklas Hult, was not included in the roster and will not be eligible to play in AEK’s Europa League run, which begins against Dynamo Kyiv on February 15.
It came to no surprise that goalkeeper, Giannis Anestis, was also not included having fallen out of Manolo Jimnez’s plans for the season. The injured Petros Mantalos and Jakob Johansson were included in the list submitted to UEFA but are not expected to make an appearance unless AEK make a long run in Europe’s second tier club competition.
