The well-known reporter referred to the necessary self-criticism in the ranks of Olympiakos after the heavy defeat by PAOK and ahead of West Ham.
The need for the Olympiakos players to react by taking on their responsibility for the defeat by PAOK was emphasized by Nikos Stamatelos on bwinSPORT FM 94.6 ahead of Thursday’s difficult match against West Ham.
“Martinez also took responsibility in front of the players, but it would be good for the footballers to take their own responsibilities, because they are not unlucky for Sunday’s image. Everyone has a share, some less, some more. I don’t believe that the Spaniard did it diplomatically, because he realizes that he is also to blame. But at least he did it unlike other managers in the past, like Martins who in some defeats blamed everything on the players. The question is what can change immediately to show a completely different face on Thursday.” he reported.
“There will definitely be some changes. Ortega will definitely play on the left. Logically, the formation with three midfielders will be maintained, even though it didn’t go well with PAOK. The point is for everyone to help in defense, because if the defense is left exposed again, Olympiacos can’t expect much in London. He has two difficult games ahead, against West Ham and then in Tripoli. In general, he has a difficult schedule ahead, with many away matches and he is also waiting for the final punishment for the derby with Panathinaikos”he added.
