Dimitris Davakis, Legal Advisor of the Hellenic Football Federation and, according to his friends, "massive supporter of Olympiakos" (SDNA had the reportage with all the details about him on June 20).
Christos Ifantis, General Director of the HFF, ex-journalist and the other person, along with Mr. Davakis, who was controlling the recent policy of the Hellenic Football Federation. He is also a fan of Olympiakos.
Pafsanias Papanikolaou, Executive Director of the Federation and for many years one of the leaders of the "company". Along with Mr. Ifantis, he is one of the 4 administration's officials (Prountzos and Papanikolaou the other two) who are involved in the case of the "criminal organization" and, of course, are facing the danger to be banned for life from football, when their case finally reaches the newly founded Ethics Committee.
The Deputy Minister of Sports, Stavros Kontonis, has constantly called Mr. Ifantis and Mr. Papanikolaou as the "heads" of the current HFF's administration. Pafsanias Papanikolaou claims to be a supporter of PAOK.
We should mention that during the last weeks he has started "contacting" the "opposite party", in order to remain a member of the Hellenic Football Federation after the upcoming October's elections. Still, he stands along Mr. Davakis and Mr. Ifantis at their "war" against Kostakis Koutsokoumnis.
Which is the link between the three gentlemen mentioned above, who are the "strong system servants" in the Federation (stronger than the... current president Giorgos Girtzikis) according to the members of the "opposite party"? They express the "tough attitude" of the HFF against FIFA's representative in Greece Kostakis Koutsokoumnis, who is in constant talks with the Hellenic Football Federation and the Greek Government for months, trying to "clean" one of the most corrupted areas of the european football!
Dimitris Davakis, with the acceptance of Christos Ifantis and Pafsanias Papanikolaou, is the one who has written an official letter against Mr. Koutsokoumnis and wants to send it to FIFA and the other Associations, according to Saturday's reports. Among the others, he is accusing Kostakis Koutsokoumnis that "he is blasting the HFF in his talks with the Greek Government and Stavros Kontonis".
The Substitute President of the Hellenic Football Federation, Vangelis Topoliatis (his son has a successful career with Olympiakos' Youth Department) and the President of Trikala Football Union Thanasis Boutziolis, who had made the owner of AEK Dimitris Melissanidis extremely angry in the recent past, also stand by the "tough attitude" of the three people mentioned above.
On the contrary, the president of the HFF Giorgos Girtzikis, the vice president Vangelis Mazarakis and some more experienced Football Unions' officials are not willing to send such a letter until now, since they believe that in that case "FIFA will immediately terminate their administration"!
It is not the first time that Mr. Davakis and Mr. Ifantis are acting against Mr. Koutsokoumnis. When the Cypriot official first came in Athens and started talking with Mr. Girtzikis and Mr. Kontonis, Dimitrisd Davakis and Christos Ifantis, without president Girtzikis knowing it, had sent an official letter against him to FIFA, according to reliable sources. A few hours later, when FIFA threatened the Hellenic Football Federation with the appointment of a temporary administrative committee, Giorgos Girtzikis was forced to send a new mail of apology because of their behavior.
An interesting detail from Friday is that even when SDNA excluded that FIFA has sent an ultimatum to the HFF, giving them just a few days notice in order to accept the new Ethics Code, otherwise they would punish them hard, Mr. Davakis was claiming that "he has not received anything particular at his e-mail". And when Kostakis Koutsokoumnis confirmed with a statement the ultimatum and how EXTREMELY SERIOUS FIFA considers it to be, the Hellenic Football Federation was once again forced to confirm it with a... ridiculous announcement. Meanwhile, the first rumours about Gianni Infantinos' denial to have a meeting with Giorgos Girtzikis had already started.
The "tough attitude" of the three officials, their letter against Mr. Koutsokoumnis and the fact that they were making fan of him during the recent HFF's Board of Directors' Meeting is something well-known to him and to Theodore Theodoridis (UEFA), Gianni Infantino (FIFA). So, EVERYBODY is aware of the danger towards the Hellenic Football Federation and if the "strong system servants" finally manage to "beat" Giorgos Girtzikis, the current administration will be officially terminated and the worst thing is that the Greek football will once again suffer the danger of "Grexit", with extremely serious consequences for the teams that are participating in the european competitions.
The "system's support" to the Central Refereeing Committee of "Kyros and Deppie Vassaras"!
We should mention another important fact towards this case, the support of the "system servants" and the president of the HFF to Kyros Vassaras and his wife, Deppie, who is the current director of the Central Refereeing Committee, along with their strong support to all their members (Frangiskos Somarakakis and the others).
Even if Christos Panagopoulos, a high-level official of Panathinaikos, had a meeting with Giorgos Girtzikis recently and asked him to replace the current CRC, along with Kyros and Deppie Vassaras... Even if hte voting results of last Friday's administrative review was a disaster (by numbers) for their administration... Even if almost EVERYBODY is yelling that it is not reasonably to organize the new Referees Boards ahead of 2016-17 Super League with this people... Nothing has been done until now.
It seems that the "system servants" still believe that FIFA will finally not do anything against them! If they read carefuly Friday's official letter, then maybe they will understand that their "end" is near and probably the International Association will be the one to "sign" it. Nowadays, FIFA (through Kostakis Koutsokoumnis at first) has understand the situation of Greek football, knows what to do and is willing to do it...
