During the summer of 1978 he was transferred to Olympiakos where he stayed for one season, playing in 13 games and scoring 7 goals. He later went on to play for Atromitos Athens. In 1980 before he retired and became president of PSAP he went full circle and returned to Panathinaikos.[4] Antoniadis was a very accomplished header of the ball and possessed a strong shot. He made 21 appearances and scored 6 goals for the Greek national team between 1970 and 1977.[5] He is the vice-president of the football team of Panathinaikos since the summer of 2008.
