Tudor said among other things at the press conference after PAOK defeat: "We need more quality players, that will be better than the ones marking them; or that the players we currently have don’t fight as much as they could. This is my honest answer, it is not always the manager’s choice on who is playing and who is not, it has to do with the general operation of the team. "
The Tudor words 'translated' by many as tips for the PAOK players. The Croatian was informed for the climate created and wanted to make some clarifications.
Tudor told the PAOK people that the manager always takes responsibility and would never blame the players for a defeat.
Regarding the: "if the players we have do not show their quality on the pitch, we will need other players", Tudor explained that he wasn’t targeting the players, but instead he wanted to restart their ego as he believes that the quality his players have doesn’t show in the pitch especially in the offensive part of the team..
