"I feel better day after day, the members of the club are very nice and I believe that we will create a very good team and a strong squad. I think we worked hard and the trainings were solid, we are trying to be improved in certain things and I am sure that we are going well.
When I signed, I told that Panathinaikos is among the most important Balkan clubs, with great history and excellent conditions. I think that it is the next step in order to perform again in the european competitions, Panathinaikos is a great club and I love being a member of it.
The manager and president of Lokomotiv Plovdiv, Kolev and Bonev correspondingly, had told me to give a positive response to Panathinaikos offer immediately, not think it twice. I still have to be improved in the fitness condition, but my knee is better after my injury and everything is going well.
Still, I have to reach a solid level of fitness condition, because I missed much time and it was difficult for me not being able to play in matches. Right now, I am not thinking of the National Team. The most important thing is to retain my confidence, improve my game and if things go well, of course I would like to return to the National Team.
I know that Panathinaikos did not win Super League in the previous years and suffered a Europa League elimination from Gabala. So, everybody is expecting to advance to the group stage now, because it is a very important part of the team's history.
When I signed a visited the training center, I realized that we have a great chance to advance to the Europa League, because we have a strong team and I have no doubt that we could do it. I think it's also the time to end Olympiakos' domination in Greece! Things are going well for us right now and the confidence remains high.
Our first targets is to advance to Europa League's group stage and end Olympiakos' domination, so I think that this will be a good season for Panathinaikos. I am a clever footballer, trying to play with my mind at first and be three steps ahead of the others. This is very important.
I also think that my left foot is solid and have an aerial ability, you should expect many good performances from me. The most important thing in a defensive line is knowing each other and we all have to be thinking like we are one person.
The formations are also important, every manager is trying some things during the pre season, to know from which quality players to expect the most and who of them to use. After that, with the best players available, he selects the right formation for his team.
Everybody knows Christian Ledesma and his great career in Italy, I am sure that he could be an excellent signing, but this is the job of the administration, not mine. There are many players from different countries in Panathinaikos right now, but everything is fantastic.
All the lads are very nice and we will create a strong team, after all we are all speaking the language of football. I don't want to promise anything to the fans, the only thing I can say right now is that we will fight till the end with all our power", said the 28-year-old international at Sky Channel.
