"It's a shame that PAOK did not manage to eliminate AFC Ajax, we played much better at the first half but not at the second. After what I saw, I have no doubt that PAOK have a very strong squad and we will soon see very nice things from the team. We just have to give them some time, it is still early to speak about success but I think that we will make something great during this season, we just need some more time.
Manager Vladan Ivic knows well the meaning of PAOK and understands the feelings of the fans. This is something very important for me, he is a serious, hard-working manager and a very nice guy. I believe that things will go well for PAOK and him in the future. I hope to finally see good refereeing in Super League, don't allow them to do the same 'shit' as in recent years.
This will be decisive for the championship, because it is certainly the most important part. Let's hope to finally see some solid work from the Greek referees, the football of this country needs that. If PAOK perform with seriousness in both games, they will eliminate Dinamo Tbilisi. Football punishes you if you don't remain concentrated from the first until the last minute of every match.
So, I think that PAOK should be serious and forget the rumours that our opponents are weaker than us. Play good, attacking football, something that they can certainly do, and advance to Europa League's group stage, something that is very important for the prestige of the club", said the 39-year-old Uruguayan at "Metrosport" athletic newspaper.
