Speaking for the first time after his injury, AEK midfielder Petros Mantalos said he will not hurry to return.
"It is the first time I suffer from such a severe injury", the 23-year-old said. "I haven't had many injuries, but that is life. I am now focused on coming back. I am not in a hurry. If it has to be six months, it will be six months, so that I will return strong. The sad thing is that I will be away from the team, but it doesn't hurt right now. I am fine. AEK can cope with my absence, they have proved that. I am just one of the 30 players".
