About being the youngest president (29 years old) in the history of the club: "Since I was young, there were certain parts of life interested me: Panathinaikos, sports, military and national issues and education. I am waking up early, not going out at nights, neither drinking or smoking, only taking time with those activities. Alexandros Kalafatis, brother of Panathinaikos' founder Giorgos, was the youngest president in the history of Panathinaikos, I am possibly the youngest in recent history of the club".
About the targets of Panathinaikos: "We are trying to end the current situation of misery in the club, we will not be complaining about what is happening, my main target is to terminate the debt of Panathinaikos AC as soon as possible. This is my word, we will try to find out what really happened during the last 15 years and organize a business plan in order to solve the problems. The supporters of Panathinaikos will be surprised by the evidence we will reveal in the future and unfortunately in a negative way".
His vision and plans for Panathinaikos: "My biggest dream is to manage becoming a real family, work as one person. Nobody has achieved that in the past, even if many people tried. The football and basketball departments, the AC, hardcore fans of Gate 13 and simple supporters of the team should be united and working for the same purpose. An organization should be united in order to be successful, we know that we have our own serious problems and then start worrying about Olympiakos and the others".
The relationship with FC and BC administrations: "We have a monthly contract with the football department, there is some delay but nothing serious, things are going well. There is no contract with the basketball department, but we have been informed that they will pay the total amount of money at the end of season. I will not blame Giannakopoulos family for anything, Pavlos and Thanasis have given 25-30 million euros to Panathinaikos and current owner of BC, Dimitris, certainly loves the club and has proven it".
His relationship with president Giannis Alafouzos: "I have respect for him because he is a quality person, he has supported AC during Ilias Michalarias' spell and mine. Obviously there are some financial problems, but I think that his plan for the football department is right and will be effective. Still, I think that we should not be complaining all the time, because Panathinaikos has 100 years of history, many titles and millions of fans. We should all understand quickly that we have to change our current mentality".
His opinion about Olympiakos and Vangelis Marinakis: "They are investing in a short-term plan, not respecting the history and regardless to their recent success, they will be defeated in the end. Their values are not moral and I am not a politician, worrying about the elections every four years, I am a military officer and not willing to resign from the corps. I disagree with the tactics of Vangelis Marinakis, I want a Panathinaikos fan to be the owner of the club, Warzycha and Vranković were my most beloved athletes".
The ideal administration for Panathinaikos: "The best one was that of basketball department during Giannakopoulos brothers era, with the help of my father, Takis. These two people were passionately love Panathinaikos, they stayed at the club for 20 years and even the fans of other teams were respecting them. When the owner is crying and feeling such pain for his club, success is surely on the way for it. The only disaster of Panathinaikos is having a losing mentality and we are heading towards that direction".
His rumored connections with far-right political party Golden Dawn: "I have nothing to do with Golden Dawn or Elias Kasidiaris, all those rumors was a suspicious plan in order to hurt my father and me personally. I want the new stadium of Panathinaikos to be constructed at Leoforos, if there is support from the strong officials and the supporters of the club you can build in anywhere you want. Panathinaikos is much stronger than AEK, I am in charge of creating a new vision with winning mentality and passion".
The differences between Panathinaikos Gate 13 and Olympiakos Gate 7: "Gate 13 itself is not in the administration of AC, certain people who used to be members of the hardcore supporters of the team are. Gate 7 has been defeated in every level by us and their only way of escaping is being in charge of Olympiakos AC. I do not want to be depended on the wallet of a rich businessman as they are doing, we can not compare Vangelis Marinakis with Pavlos or Thanasis Giannakopoulos according to my opinion".
About his past relationship with Gate 13, before becoming president: "I will always be a member of Gate 13, but the hardcore fans are not making any decisions about the administrations of AC, FC or BC. The members of Gate 13 have decided before a few years that they prefer being out of the administrative positions and judging the officials of the club. Personally, I am attending the home games of Panathinaikos from a different gate of Leoforos Stadium nowadays, not from Gate 13, in order to be with my friends".
