A fraction of the team's fans decided to make him a pleasant surprise. About 250 of them left the Greek football league game between Olympiacos and Apollon Smyrna, taking place in Piraeus, ten minutes before the final whistle, and paid the legendary ex-player a visit at his household, where a party with chants and flares broke out.

Spanoulis welcomed the surprise full of joy and excitement as he did not expect it. The former captain of the Reds and his family were speechless since they didn't have the slightest idea that such an event would take place.

According to, Vassilis Spanoulis was sitting at home with his family when he heard voices and chants. He immediately got up with his wife and kids to see the fans of Olympiacos sing his name. "Thank you for honoring me and loving me as I have loved you. I always had in mind how to make you proud. Stand next to the team as you've always done. I love you very much," was the 39-year-old's message to the gathered crowd.

Olympiacos intend to hold a special event to honor Spanoulis at some point during the season. Details will be announced in due time.
