Whether Thomas Mitropoulos, Giannis Papadopoulos and Achilleas Beos attended to the gathering at Thessaloniki: "I tell you they were definitely not. I was the one who was guesting the people and I have a full picture of who was there. Thomas Mitropoulos and Giannis Papadopoulos never came. Why something like that was released in the Media at a critical time like this, you're responsible to respond. There is clearly feasibility.
I did not see and did not informed about the arrivals of any of those two. I am sure about this. As for Mr. Beos, I did not see him, but was informed that he was there. He was not, however, invited to be in such a meeting as we had planned when we coordinated this movement. Mr. Beos was there for his personal affairs and not for the purpose that we were there".
Whether Thomas Mitropoulos calls people in account of their movement: "I do not understand this and do not care about these type of phone calls. The contacts on behalf of our movement are being made by specific people and me personally. Neither Thomas Mitropoulos nor anyone else is making phone calls. Nothing has come to my knowledge",
On whether he feels that winning momentum has been created for the opposition movement: "It turned out that there is strength in out movement and it is not simply a surrounding atmosphere. The facts are the witnesses and could speak for themselves. Be sure that more Unions will join our cause and stand by our side soon. It is a great potential and gives me the peace of mind and confidence that will be enough for the victory. Our target is to clean football and you will see by yourselves that this will be the project of the next HFF's administration.
Each Union has some specialties. I respect some of them, some others not. There are Unions which still do not want to occur for various reason. I am sure that with the arguments we have, which are also the arguments of the majority of football bans, we will convince them that the time has come. I respect all associations, even those that are not by our side. I am just not speaking with them because there is no communication channel. Since there is no common ground, there is no room for discussion".
Whether he will be the candidate of the opposition movement: "You ask a question that you know the answer in advance. Right now I'm not the leader of this movement. I'm the one that coordinates with others this project. Certainly, someone will have to be selected as leader, but this will be in a way that there will be no doubt that he is accepted by all. Depending on the outcome of our conversations, maybe I can also be one of the candidates, always putting the positive atmosphere and unity in front".
Which will be the next day in greek football if the opposition movement did not win the elections: "The next day will be more of the same. They will not solve the problems of Unions and the violence in stadiums. Football will never recover and we may even live worse days than those we are living now".
About the rumours that some Unions were threatened in order to not attend Thessaloniki's gathering: "Many people know that. I also understood it in person. Not to let a Union to speak freely means fear and weakness. We did not call any Unions to tell them not to attend Girtzikis' meeting. They used the opposite tactics. However, the Unions which want football to go forward will come with us and not with Girtzikis' party. I will not comment on those who were threatened not to come to the gathering".
For the speculation on selective financial support to certain Unions: "Playing with the economic weakness of the Unions to earn votes is mildly unacceptable. I read that they are financing certain Unions, but not all of them. It's funny. It may be a coincidence that can happen once in a billion".
About specific clubs supporting Giorgos Girtzikis: "Let's not fool ourselves. All the parties are supported from someone. I told you from the beginning that everything will be clear. Every club has the right to vote during Hellenic Football Federation's General Meeting, so they can support anybody they want. Obviously Olympiakos is supporting Giorgos Girtzikis.
It is not a lie that AEK, PAOK and Panathinaikos are supporting our movement. We are all aware of what is happening in greek football. It is not bad, it is not unfair. And obviously the other clubs have also teir reasons. Aren't they interested in who will be the president? Obviously they are interested and they will help in their own way one of the parties".
His prediction about October's elections: "It's like asking me which party would come first, while the elections are in five months. Right now, our party has a strong majority which will become even stronger. For now, we are completely satisfied with the support we have from the majority of Unions".
