"Everybody wants to be a part of the success, but failure is a lonely road. As the owner of Panathinaikos, I take the full responsibility for not achieving our season goals.
That happened for two reasons: a) we made a mistake in the selection of head coach (Sasha Djordjevic), which should had correct earlier. If we had done that, probably our campaign in Euroleague and Basket League would had been different.
b) I was not expecting that Olympiakos would had worked so hard in finals' background and I left my team unprotected to the weird attitude of referees-commandos, but now I have learned my lesson.
Monday's clash was not just a punch in the face, but a real kick in the balls. Still, the tough people know well how to stand up and fight again, and that's what we would do", said the Greek businessman.
