AEK manager Traianos Dellas complained to his players about the display against Iraklis and demanded victories until the end of the playoffs.
"It is the first time this season that I will not congratulate you", he said. "It is strange for me. I will not analyze the game and what went wrong. In the first half I felt it wasn't us playing the game. It had nothing to do with prior performances. We must continue with discipline and humbleness. Forget everything that happened. We will be promoted easier than they think. Let's go for victories until the end".
