"It is a very important victory, we did not have much time but I tried to change some things in the team, especially in the system. We kept our discipline and had many chances to score before our first goals, all the players gave their 100% and we deserved to win. The morale was kind of low after recent loss against Panthrakikos, but we tried to work on the psychology and talked to the lads a lot in trainings.
I did not expect to win by 3-0, but I expected the reaction and concentration of our team, keeping a clean sheet is also important. The second half was disappointing, in an awful terrain, it was a matter of clear mind and we followed our match plan. PAOK are a great club, it is not easy to be their manager, I can't say I feel much pressure but I have to remain focused on my instructions.
The only think I am asking about is the return of our injured footballers, to increase the depth of our squad, and I am sure that my players know well what I expect of them", said the 39-year-old Serbian after the match.
