"Of course we are not happy after losing against Atromitos, we were very sad after the end of the match because Panathinaikos do not deserve to be eliminated so early. I am the manager, the captain of this ship, so it is my responsibility to change some things, only positive results will make our fans happy again. I work here for only three months, we can not be judged right now, we are building something good here which should not be destroyed.
There are only two ways now, to be disappointed and do nothing or to react, which is what I prefer. We have a project for the future, the season has not ended yet, we have to return in Europe and built a strong side for the next year. Our fans support us and we have to prove that we are not the team they saw at Peristeri, the upcoming away match against PAS Giannina is important for them and we need to remain concentrated", said the Italian manager.
