"Ι think that the Basketball Federation is tidier that Football's. Successes come from the clubs and the National Team. They are well structured. Violent episodes have been limited and that is positive. I have a great relationship with the Natioanl Team and I expect to progress in the Eurobasket" Kontonis said.
If he would take over thw Ministry of Sports: "I would do the same with even greater intensity. Unfortunately, there has been a stop in recent days by the administration of Greek Football Federation to trap the law to combat violence and placing sports practicing regular judges to disciplinary bodies.
The interruption due to the elections would not reverse the course of events. The consolidation effort will last. The ministers of the Left nor are frightened nor bribed".
