"The only thing I know about them is that they managed to eliminate Herta Berlin, which is very important and proves the quality of their squad. We have to be ready to face them, because when you meet strong opponents you always have to be prepared, in order to compete them for the victory.
We are currently working hard, Panathinaikos have to reach Europa League's group stage. We are preparing towards this, but also want to be ready for Super League's championship, so we are working every day with the target of returning on top of the league.
Both sides are earning things from my cooperation with Panathinaikos, the most important thing is the success and the every day activity of the club. We built some structures, trying to help and protect each other, this is the only way for the positive results to come during the upcoming season", said the 40-year-old former international midfielder.
