"It was a tough game and we were prepared for it, Platanias is a good team which plays an interesting football. We could have scored three goals at our spell of dominance, we deserved to win, there were matches that we played much better but lost. We have some injury problems because some players were not in pre-season training, I have not seen clearly the penalty incident.
You should not underestimate teams, PAOK can not win opponents like Platanias 5-0 in every game. Of course I did not tell my players to delay the game, but they defended well in the last minutes and that is positive.", said the Croatian manager at the press conference.
