AEK coach Elias Papatheodorou claimed that AEK only keeps the victory from the game with Sole and did not fail to talk about the injury of Markus Sloter.
He initially said: “Another victory for us. We need to play well. We did not start in the right way. We were not focused on defense and attack and that is why the game had this image. “But we found a way to win and we have to keep it.”
On whether the first place is key: “The group is very balanced, the differences are small and if you do not play at 100% you do not win anything. You see the results.
All teams have skills. BCL has dynamics. Nothing has been decided yet. We have a lead, there are three games and the group is open “.
For Slaughter: “He tried conservatively not to go through the door of the operating room. The pains are there. I want to emphasize his presence. He knew he was going to have surgery, he was not 100% ready and it was his personal desire to play.
AEK has achieved something that has not been emphasized. He has kept a torso since last year, he has kept foreigners since last year. These players have created a family atmosphere and this is the big profit of the team.
We see foreign players being sacrificed for the team and we see how close they are to the team. His gap is big, he is a very special player. We will be in contact with the administration. If there is a possibility and there is something in the market, maybe we should move on. If not, we will go with the other children. It will depend on these 2 factors “.
