Efstratios "Stratos" Apostolakis (Greek: Στράτος Αποστολάκης) (born May 17, 1964), nicknamed The Turbo, was a Greek footballer.

The former Defender was no stranger to controversy as a player, his switch from Olympiacos to Panathinaikos in 1990 led to the cancellation of the Greek Super Cup as the authorities feared riots.

As a footballer though he played his best years for Panathinaikos being one of the key players behind Club's European runs in 1992 and 1996. He played with Panathinaikos through 1998. He was one of the best defenders his country has ever seen.

He also spent six months as a coach with Panathinaikos in 2001, before resigning from his position at the end of the year and eventually taking up the task of coaching the Olympic team for Athens 2004.

During his playing career, Apostolakis was capped 96 times by the National Football Team of Greece (5 goals)[1] and was a member of the 1994 World Cup squad. His 96 caps stood as a Greek record until it was broken by Theodoros Zagorakis.
