After the match against Alba in Berlin, Panathinaikos will decide on the forward to be acquired, as explained by Ergin Ataman on Thursday night (9/11).
The injuries of Ioannis Papapetrou – Juancho Hernangometh have hurt Panathinaikos and have, once again this year, forced them to look at the market for a player who will immediately enter the team and cover the positions of the forwards.
Ergin Ataman explained in Berlin, a day before the match against Alba (10/11 at 21:00) that the Greens will proceed with an addition, however he explained that “the truth is that we have exceeded the budget“. This does not mean that Panathinaikos will not be strengthened. Quite the contrary, as Turkos said that “we want a player for three months, until one of the injured comes back. It is not easy to cover the three position with Grigonis, as Mantzoukas will play in the four together with Mitoglou. We want a player, it’s not easy to find him at this time, we’re talking to the management and we’ll look at our options after the Alba game“.
In Panathinaikos, they calculate that Papapetrou and Hernangometh will return in the middle to the end of January, maybe even in the beginning of February due to their knee and finger injuries. As for Kendrick Nunn, Ataman said that “the first impression is very good, we will decide on Friday whether to use him or not against Alba“.
