Sokratis Papastathopoulos (Greek: Σωκράτης Παπασταθόπουλος) (born 9 June 1988) is a Greek professional footballer who plays for Werder Bremen on loan from Genoa and the Greek national team, as a defender. Since the surname Papastathopoulos cannot fit on his club shirt, his first name Sokratis is usually displayed instead; however, a common nickname for him is Papa. He is often compared to the likes of Stelios Manolas and Tony Adams by fans and is the youngest player ever to captain AEK Athens.
