"I believe that all the players have the ambition to advance to Champions League's group stage and the desire to perform at this competition. Our pre-season was very good, we are becoming better and better every day, but this is not enough. We should play clever, be very careful and better than our opponents and manage to overcome any difficulties ahead of Wednesday's clash.
We have worked hard towards the upcoming match and generally, we are well-prepared and have all the necessary information. We have watched many games of Hapoel, so I expect us to be ready tomorrow. It is not a matter of settling in, we have worked very hard this summer, we really want to advance to Champions League's group stage and I have no doubt that we will be successful.
All the members of the team are prepared for anything that could happen during the game, my teammates and me have tried different things in training and are ready to perform anywhere and in any position if Olympiakos need that. Of course, our manager will be the only one to decide the starting lineup and our game roles", said the 35-year-old former international at the Press Conference.
