AEK winger Helder Barbosa spoke to Portuguese newspaper A Bola about the attitude of Olympiacos players and manager Vitor Pereira during the Cup match.
"It could have been prevented, the fans were provoked", the 27-year-old Portuguese said about the match interruption. "Pereira's gesture? It was only one among many, I don't want to mention names. It was besides the celebrations. The players made provocative gestures. They didn't think of the consequences. But, of course, it wasn't the best attitude of our fans either".
He had more things to say about Pereira... "Olympiacos fans believe he is bold, that he is someone who isn't afraid of anything, but the fans of other teams, like Panathinaikos and AEK, believe he is provocative".
