"The atmosphere is good despite we didn't win The draw in the Europa League opener is not a bad result. We work hard for the next game. Our defenders are part of the game. We had some opportunities to score. I f we did it it was going to be different. You may have possession but if you lose the ball they can score in the counter attack. Every game is a team effort".

Pelkas, Tzavellas, Vitor, Olsen are in great form. Everybody feels good. The most important thing is the team and PAOK is a big club. Players should be able to handle the pressure".
About AEK: I know some of their players. They are a good team with fast players that play well in transition. The most important thing is PAOK to win the game. The first minutes of the derby are the most significant. You have to possess the ball and press the opponent's box. I am confident about the game".
