With a statement on Thursday, the Minister of Sports, Stavros Kontonis condemned the voting procedure of the Professional Sports Committee for the Vangelis Marinakis case and whether he exercises administration in Olympiacos, setting the substantive question of violation of rules and prescribed procedures.
One day later, on Friday, the president of the EEA Konstantinos Papalakis made a public statement about the issue, speaking for SoccerPlus.gr, denying that there was any problem.
Specifically, the statement said: "I don’t intend and will not resign. I was surprised to learn what was written on the Internet, it does not correspond to reality. The process of voting and the decision was impeccable and above all legal Not even a freshman would challenge the voting. I remain in my position doing my part towards the improvement of professional sports in Greece, a place that is sick.
