"I am proud for wearing Olympiakos' captain armband, but this is not the first time and it does not make any real difference. It is certainly a great responsibility but does not change my job, I still have to do it with even more concentration.
I am proud because I remember the great players that wore that armband in the past, something that proves its value. There are some differences to our team since the beginning of the season. Our fitness condition and the quality of our game are better now, as we proved against Veria on Sunday.
Still, there is room for improvement, we are working well and hope to continue this way, because our supporters are expecting a lot from us. Away game against Young Boys will be difficult, it will take a lot of hard work to advance to round of 32. If we achieve that, we will see what happens next, but right now we should be focused on the next match.
Our team is strong and ambitious, our main target is the qualification. In order for that to come, we have to start the competition well. It seems easy, but things are different in the field", said the 25-year-old international at Press Conference.
