"PAOK have played a lot of games and managed to qualify for the Europa League group stage. It'a a new start with new players. Dortmund have many international players. Papastathopoulos and Hummels are one of the best defensive duos in Germanny. They should not be underestimated. It's going to be difficult for the Germans since they have to travel for two consecutive games. Toumba will be full. Fans wish to see such games. Toumba is one of the most tough homes to play. Fans will support their team and Dortmund are not in good form as they have drawn in their last two matches" said Stamatopoulos.
About Schalke-Asteras: "They have been doing a great job. They try every year to bring the ideal players in the team. They managed to eliminate Mainz last year. Schalke have a new manager and young players and win game by game. Asteras should not be defensive and chase the best possible result".
About the Greek National team: "We had talked about becoming Schouster's assistant manager and I took it for granted. It would have been an honour for me to return to Greece and I had already started preparations. Negotiatons started 2 weeks ago but that's how they are. The manager would close the deal but had his own assistants in his mind. I think that our collaboration could have good results but we foget it about now. We move on".
