We must leave everything behind and make a new start", he told the official website of the club. "There will be more defeats, but we must overcome them and become even stronger. I want to see our fans united, next to the team, which needs our love and support more than ever. It has proved many times that it deserves it. PAOK needs to prove wrong whoever is trying to stop us with unfair decisions. Personally I am not tired of working and being patient through the tough road to the top we have chosen.
I am talking to the fans of PAOK: We need your positive energy, we need you along us at the happy and sad moments, after victories and defeats. Anybody that cannot stand defeats, could never enjoy victories. I have never betrayed PAOK's interest and I am asking you to show tomorrow that anybody who does it does not belong in our family. Listen to your heart and make wise decisions".
