"I am very happy I returned to my team. It's something special for meand I was looking forward to working with my players. I trust my assistants. I kept in touch and I know that everything went well. We all want to be ready and recover from minor injuries in order to focus on our targets. We have to improve some things for the opener against PAOK in Thesaloniki" the experienced coach said.
About the friendly matches: "Every friendly for us is important because we don't have a wide variety of opponnets to choose. In "Petros Oikonomakis Tournament" we have to perform well. We will play AEK and Frankfurt. I think that we will be competitive. We will play another two friendlies in Athens. These are going to be our final tests and we will be ready in the opening match".
Our main target is to enter the playoffs. I don't mean the 8th or 5th place. That's general. We want to work without problems amd try to defend last season's success" said Skourtopoulos.
