"It will be a big game and I think we will be ready. We have improved during the friendlies as proven n the match against CSKA. We haven't watched Olympiacos till now. We will study them though. Most players know about the derbies. So do I. It'a a big game. A title is judged. We aim t win like we always do".
Calathes was asked about Fotsis and Diamantidis: "It's fanatstic that I play with them. We have won many titles together. Their presence help me settle in as I was away for three years. I am a anew face too. Diamantidis is Panathinaikos legend. We all saw what happened in the friendly against Partizan. I owe him a alot. I want to give my best for the team and take the responsibilities because I feel ready to".
The 26-year-old guard referred to Sasha Djordjevic: "He is a great coach. He understands the game very well, he is smart and he wants us close to him. As a player he was a legend. He can teach me a lot of things. He can help the taam and we should exercise his plans on the court to succeed. It's difficult to comare him with Obradovic. They c both come from Serbia and have high coaching IQ. Obradovic has many years on the benches and he is fairly conedered the best. I hope Djordjevic to succeed as he did".
"We all want a good season. I am sure that our fans will support us like they have been doing all this years. We want to thenk them by winning titles. We are hungry for more" said Calathes.
