"Ι support Olympiacos since I was a child. Nothing happened in Veria. I never wore Olympiacos uniform. These were rumors created by PAOK fans" Karipidis originally said.
About Abdoun: "We will do even bigger transfer. He was my choice. Aris has the most fans in Thesaloniki. They are the biggest club. I think that throuh Aris I can fulfill my ambitions. I did not engage in the past as thought that Kalas would own the team. We awaited and we deposited our plan. Aris will be a protagonist. In 2 years, Aris will be back in Super League".
About Savvidis: "If Savvidis wanted to buy Aris, would he put me in this position now that everyone knows our bussiness partnerships? All these are constructed by Arvanitidis. I try to hold balancies. Fans will have to give us the chance. I understand their attitude but we will be judjed from the result".
I see it as a bussinessman and as a fan. Aris has many fans and we can reach the sky if we stay together. We have a three year plan to invest in Aris. We cannot accept Aris's opponents to be Kampaniakos and Agioneri. Fans want to see investments. I'll do whatever I can for Aris to finish first.
About Veria: "We will disengage with Veria. The next shareholders will come from China. I'll sell the team. We invested in Veria 500.00 euros.
About the team: "We made certain contacts but it is difficult to persuade footballers to play in the third division. We talked to Dimitris Papadopoulos, Raul Bravo and Neto.
