The finale of the derby was episodic, as the ... dogfight between Panathinaikos coach and Sfairopoulos assistant attracted comments. In fact, it led to the decision coach Sfairopoulos not to make statements at the press conference.
Speaking in the Serbian «Sport», Djordjevic said that it’s not worth mentioning the incident and added that the two defeats have ... hurt Olympiakos. “Nothing worth mentioning happened. I understand the nerves because it was the second time they lost to us within 15 days. But this does not mean that Sfairopoulos can behave in such a way because of an incident concerning me and Tomic. It is very easy to avoid the questions about the reasons of the defeat, throwing the blame to a fight between Tomic and myself. "
Meanwhile, the former coach of Partizan, Dusko Vujosevic said:
"The big problem is that Olympiacos was defeated twice by Panathinaikos. I am 100% standing by Djordjevic. Olympiacos threw the responsibility for the defeat on something other than what happened on court. "
