Specifically, this is what Marco Silva said at the press conference:
"Good evening (in Greek). I cannot deny that because we had several consecutive games and despite the many victories of the fact that we will have a week’s rest is positive. Although we rotated the squad today we had players who played 90 minutes and they must rest. Also the injured will return. So although we are happy with our progress I cannot hide that the break is important."
"Yes, the truth is that I've played again in a derby. I'm ready to do it again. I'm ready for the derby. We will start from now because we will not have all players with us. It will be next week where we will all be present. Three or four days before the derby we will be together and we'll be ready. "
"Nothing is easy in life. So it is in football. Everything reflects on the work done. Today we recognize that things could be better in terms of the image but it is not easy after a Champions League game. There are no secrets, just hard work. "
"No. It is purely my decision. Today played four different players than in the previous game. We said not to make another change. Today the midfielders were faultless. Kasami was very good and certainly was one of the best of the game and there was no reason to replace him. "
"I thank him very much for his kind words. Iraklis created problems for us, something we expected. This is a well-organized team with a good defense. In relation to the future we have two days to rest. On Wednesday we will get back to work and nothing will change. We will until May.”
"I understand your question. When Manuel came at the beginning of the year he showed us his level and that he would be important for us. But he was injured and against Platanias he showed that he was not ready. He helped us a lot today. We have no doubt that he will do the same in the future and that he will continue to work and improve. "
