"It is a failure that affected everyone. The manager changed, we had some defeats and the players were not in form. We should have a base and have players that have a strong personality. A lot of upside downs have happened because many players didn't play in a team last year.
I respects every player's opinion but every individual sees things from his own aspect. A team is always affected by the general atmoshpere" the Greek manager said.
About Mundial qualifiers: "The Greek national team should clarify their targets. Call players that will not be bored to play for their country but see it as a chance. The last games we watched in the Euro qualifiers were 0-0, 0-1, 1-0. Last night we played Romania that is ranked 7th but they didn't manage to win a team like Greece that is ranked in 44th place. We will qualify for the Mundial if we have the elements that launched us in the past.
Αbout Karagounis and Greek Football Federation: FGreek football doesn't need such divisions. We should all be united. In difficukties we want the fans by our side since we do not need support that much when we succeed. Some people think that the players do not understand that they are in the last place in a group with Faroe Islands. We have so many problems in our football but we have players that are protagonists in the Greek League. We can't make transfers in the national team.
About the number of players being called: "The national team should consist of players of high level. Did anyone ask Ranieri why he called Mantalos and Diamantakos? You can't ignore those that are in form.
About the new manager: "It doesn;t have to do with the nationality. The manager to come should understand our players' style. Last night against Romania we had many young players, fact that makes us optimistic. The team that won the Euro 2004 was close to 30.
About Vougioukas tweet: "Since we talk about national teams, I believe that we talk about one country. Winning doesn't mean that a player can go to Mykonos".
