"Our first season we faced Olympiacos. Last season we played in the semi-finals and now we play in the quarter finals. We know Faros Keratsiniou very well. They have experienced players. I have collaborated with many of them and they play in the second division due to the economic data. Our primary target is not the cup. We use such matches to find our game and of course we want to win. We aim to avoid our degradation early in the league. Then we will set our next target. We dicided to do something new this year. We are together for many years. We changed the team and kept only Mavroidis and Popovic from last season. We want to create a Greek core" said Papatheodorou.
About his future in the National Team: "I haven't decided if I will stay. I would like to talk to Greek BA chairman Giorgos Vasilakopoulos. It's an honour to work for such teams but you forfeit many things during the summer. We will talk and we will decide".
