"Everybody knows that the season targets of AEK are very high and you have to work hard and try a lot in order to be successful. I want you to speak again only with your work in the field. We will stand by your side in everything you ask for, we have faith in the team and each one of you. I wish you a healthy and successful season, which will make our supporters proud for us.
Good luck ahead of the first european match on Thursday. Believe in yourselves, fight hard against AS Saint-Étienne and return to Greece with a positive result, which will allow us to eliminate them at the rematch in Athens. I wish you every success", said the Greek businessman, who was accompanied by executive director Dusan Bajevic and president Vangelis Aslanidis.
