"I want to thank everybody who worked with me", were his words. "I wish Mr Giorgos Georgiadis good luck and victories from now on. I believe we can reach our goals and I will be the first one to be happy about it. I also want to thank the football players. I must say that they have the least responsibility for what has happened and I want to make clear that I never tried to imply anything about their role or attitude. Lastly, I would like to thank Mr Savvidis, his family and his relatives. I will pray to God to keep them safe and healthy".
