"I would like to inform you that my resignation or the coercion to resign, even if nobody asked me to do it, has to do with moral and not performance reasons", he said. "As far as the games are concerned, I will never let anyone guide me. I was only concerned about AEK and not the people. I wanted a winner mentality for AEK and not a team that would be satisfied with a "small" defeat. It is my fault too, but I am not guilty. After Monday, there was no point in going on, since there was no team spirit".
At the end of the statement, Dellas thanked the players, the coaching team and AEK fans.
