Frédéric Nikitis was a Greek midfielder, and he began his professional career in 1947, playing for RC Paris in the First Division. He was rarely used though for his first club, and - after three seasons in Paris - he eventually signed for Stade Rennais in time for the 1950/1951 season, where he would be a regular in the First Team starting line-up at the beginning of the season. As the campaign wore on, however, he would gradually lose that place with competition from Lachèze, Prouff and Le Dren. He was subsequently loaned out to FC Rouen for the following season, making just four appearances in the Second Division. He returned to Rennes for the 1952/1953 season, which would prove to be his last as a professional footballer. In his two seasons playing in a Rennes shirt, he made a total of 30 appearances, scoring two goals in that time. He would continue playing in amateur football thereafter with Evreux, before hanging up his boots to become First Team manager with the team from Normandy, a rôle which he occupied from 1955-1961. Outside of football, he became the manager of the company "La Réserve Courchevel", specialised in renting out of land and other buildings assets, in 1987.
