Aris amateur department Tasos Oikonomou said on the radio: "Aris is an amateur club. We tried to upgrade the team to Football League but we ended up in the third division".
About Karipidis: "Arvanitidis showed up a month ago when Alex Kalas won the assembly. Arvanitidis promised managers and players and when Kalas lost our trust, Arvanitidis took over. The days were few and nothing happened. No managers and no results. As administrative council we decided to turn to mr Karipidis. We don't carea bout his past but how he can help the team. According to Karipidis, Christopoulos is going to be the next manager of the team" Oikonomou said.
