"I knew the situation of Panathinaikos, we had some difficulties but I am optimistic things will improve. We want to return in european competitions, finish in the higher Super League position and win the Greek Cup. Boumale of Panionios, our first capture, will help the club and I have made a conversation with administration about some other transfers, there are clear ideas about them.
When you lose a game, you want to play again the next day. I am not happy with Panthrakikos result, second and third place are not good enough for Panathinaikos. We need to work hard and improve, starting from the upcoming match against Panaitolikos. We will play without our fans' attendance, but there are no excuses and we need to turn things around", said the Italian manager on greek TV.
