Thesaloniki mayor mentioned about Aris "Αs a mayor, I support every team from Thesaloniki. I am a fan of Aris but Aris condition is shameful. Nobody's to blame except for Aris people and all the protests they made are also shameful. Hooligans should think that the goals are scored by good players. Not by fans. They can't demand for Aris to be in the first league beceuse if their past"
"Berbatov has an exceptional football career and I believe that he can help PAOK, the strongest team in Thesaloniki. He is near the end of his career. He is 33-years-old, not 22" Boutaris said.
