Published in three parts was something that managed to create anticipation ... and this confirms that it was interesting.
When I was in Germany I occupied the same dormitory (apartment) with a Japanese named Tiki and a Russian (the Soviet Union back then, but his father was in the diplomatic corps) named Sergei.
I never came close to the Japanese. Great man, full of talent ... but from another planet. ... How to explain it? Another culture ...
With Sergei things were simpler. There was the European bond ... the common language ... but when he had something stack in his mind you couldn’t convince him that it was wrong. He would turn the world upside down, honestly, the whole world turned upside down. Typical Russian reaction... something like concrete.
If you have noticed the Mr. Savvides didn't talk at all in numbers. He spoke only about the decisions he made so far. The Russian side of his is unable to accept the failure of the thoughts he made. ....
-I will make PAOK on of Europe’s greatest teams! he said.
-Because I love PAOK
-Why I love him?
-Because Constantinople, black and white, because they PAOK in not just a team, but something else.
In other words he said.
PAOK is currently the most trendy club in Greece. I'm not saying "successful” I am saying trendy... The reason is simple: The social media helped ... the passion of his fans ... but basically because of the “fairytale of PAOK" ... The history represented ... went viral.
The wronged is always the darling of the crowd ... Wherever I go in Athens I’d meet someone who loves PAOK. I do not mean Thessalonian in Athens ... but ... Athenian not a Macedonian. This is a great thing ... But why can an Athenian love PAOK?
Because of the rivalry against Aris?
Of course not...
He loves the "fairytale".
What the bourgeois of Panathinaikos had never ...what has Olympiakos (almost) lost and what AEK is looking for ... the "fairytale" (the myth I mean) that constant fighting.
No matter on how many details (financial) Mr. Savvides talked about ... be revealed thoughts / decisions... not for a moment he didn’t leave aside the subtle / mystic that unites PAOK lovers.
He wants to change everything ... but not to dismantle the old.
This is the language of PAOK.
What really happened to such a powerful businessman and decided to give such an in-depth interview.
Mmmmmmm .... I am holding a small basket.
Obviously people like Ivan Savvides know how to count and control their feelings!
The answer I have in my mind is arbitrary, but I stand by it:
He gave the interview to emphasize that he has feelings for the team.... Why as a businessman he knows that success is not (just) mathematical equations.
