"We have to die trying to win the championship and also compete for the Greek Cup and a successful campaign at the European competitions. You know well the season targets of the club and what you have to do not only at your athletic career, but also with your life. I am here for you, we have to fight for PAOK, like the thousands of team's supporters are also doing.
You noticed on Thursday that the fans are leaving their problems behind and stand by your side. Stay close to your manager, we are a team and have to fight as a team. Success is clearly a team job and failure the same, no matter if someone is performing well, if the club is not successful, he can not be successful on individual level", said the Greek-Russian businessman to the footballers of the historic Thessaloniki side.
