"It was a different summer from the previous ones we lived in Asteras. Last year we almost completed a year of playing matches constantly. This summer was clearly better. After the victory against PAOKwe had some time to rest and to work on tactics" Staikos Vergetis originally said.
About the Championship: "They were two completely opposite concerning the results, but we played good. We played aggressively, we won a match. This is football. The philosophy remains unwavering. "
About Barales: "We have been hurt much more. We had lost de Blasis, Usero, now Barales. The club can not depend on individuals. It is something that Asteras has managed and will continue to manage regardless who the coach will be".
About Olympiacos: "When the proposal for the friendly match against Olympiakos was made I thought that it is a very strong team that will allow us to draw conclusions about our European matches. We had to try two systems. It went very well, it was a successful friendly match, despite the high temperature".
"I liked Olympiacos a lot. No need to say much about Cambiasso. The two new faces showed very good individual abilities. They know their positions, how to move. Hernani is quick and has good technique. Ideye can fill the region to receive the ball and takes advantage of his teammates. However, they need time to join the team. To these players I look at the speed of their decisions. He played at once, "photographed" the stadium, knew where to pass the ball. He plays vertically, which will increase Olympiacos speed".
