"It was the right time for Boumale to make a career step, he totally deserves it. Nothing was easy for him so far, but he proved his quality at Panionios the last 18 months. At this time, it is an excellent transfer for Panathinaikos, since they believe in him and he will have a certain role at the team.
It's not just a matter of players' ability when they go to a bigger team, so many of them failed to achieve at Olympiakos. It is important to include a player's talent into club's total philosophy and support him to prove his quality", said the Greek manager at his SDNA interview.
