PAOK got an imposing victory in “Georgios Karaiskakis”, with 4-2 over Olympiakos, for the 10th matchday of Super League 1 and Razvan Loucescu praised his players after the game.
Lucescu spoke at the press conference about the match against Olympiakos and the changes in his team’s eleven, but he did not fail once again to leave “tips” about the… system that is “chasing” PAOK.
For PAOK’s victory: The season is long and has many matches. It is judged in above matches. Having played 19 matches we have lost 2 of them. It makes sense to have a misstep. We were forced into consecutive qualifiers in Europe. On the bad days you have to overcome the upset and win. We have opponents who are teams, good and quality and have the full support of the system.
For the changes in relation to the match with AEK: I will not answer questions that compare another race. It was another match with AEK. We have to change because we have games all the time. We have to take advantage in every match. I appreciate all my players. There are also matches with 9 changes. We use the largest number of players.
On his father’s retirement from the stands: First of all I can’t answer. It’s his life. I can give you his phone number. We talked a little. It’s his career and his life. I’m more than relieved he’s coming back. I don’t know what can happen. It’s not easy dealing with five great-grandchildren. And for me it’s hard to deal with grandchildren. It’s driving you crazy.
For Brandon Thomas, his “madness” and his performances: Brandon Thomas is no crazier. Koulierakis is crazier. Brandon has more sense. It’s nice in a team to have so many crazy people. I’m happy about the win, how we played and Brandon’s maturity. For the past, Pantelis is my friend. But we are not looking at the past. Samata was ill. Maybe tomorrow he’s in training. We’ll see Vieirania. We’ll have more tomorrow.
About Konstantelias and what feelings it creates for him: Both on a good level and on a bad level (it causes him emotions). When you’re young you do “m@λ@k@@s”. As did Koulierakis who shot. In football as in life when you are arrogant you are punished. I am completely satisfied and want for these 2 guys because they play with me at a higher level and they are 2 very good guys.
