"It's an indication that AEK are a huge club. They recognize people's help and honours them. There will be great moments for everyone. For the fans, the team and the management. A team is a ship alike. Players are the crew, coach is the captain. He has to guide them. Coach Ivkovic and coach Sakota succeeded at AEK 100%.They gad great players but they managed to create a whole capable of the best" Chatzis said.
About Ivkovic and Sakota: "Their ideas about basket do not identify completely and that's reasonable. The general philosophy of theirs is common though. They have the winner's spirit. They didn;t negotiate with hard training and devotion. They were addicted to winning. That was important for a club like AEK. Ivkovic changed the mentality of the team. We are not successfull only when we win trophies. It's reasonable to connect Sakota with te upset of 2002. We had some experiences with Ivkovic and Sakota managed to finish the job. His contribution to that championship was great. Sakota did what he should do to take the best of us".
