Thodoris Karipidis talked on a radio broadcast about his wish to take over Aris FC and help the team return to the Super League: "On Monday I will be there to see what we can do with Aris. Aris should be in the Super League and why not in Europe. Aris is a big team with a lot of fans. Veroia is a good team too.This year there is no legal problem to run both clubs because Aris will be in 3rd Division. But in the coming period we should complete the share transfer process in order not not have a problem with the Professional Sports Committee. "
"We have a plan for players and coaches with whom we talk, but all of this is theoretical because they do not know if we will be given the club on Monday. I think I can offer in Greek football, although I don't have much experience and I can promote Aris in the Super League."
About the share transfer: "This will take about 2-3 months, but there will be no legal problems, the process is time consuming and the interested are already informed."
About Ivan Savvidis: "Ivan is my friend and partner in business. Me owning Aris does not mean I will stop talking with Savvides. We are friends, but on the field we are rivals. Ivan did not like it. When Aris rises in the Super League we will be opponents. I can not hide my relationship with Savvides. They must trust me. Anyone who wants to accuse me will say that Ivan is behind me".
About Georgiads and Vryzas: "It does not mean that because they came in Veria is Savvidis's job. They are professionals and if they do not their job we will have a problem"
About Arvaniyidis: "We are not enemies, bussiness is irrelevant. I do not want to talk about k.Arvanitidi. We'll see on Monday to whom the team will be given".
"It would be very difficult for me in 20 days to build a team for the Football League. Aris fans may not like what I will say. It displeases me that we lose a year but it will the transition will be better. I'll fix up a team to take the lead" Karipidis said.
