Pre-match Press Conference against Partizan

Please read below quotes from our club’s head coach, Mr Besnik Hasi, and Kostas Fortounis on the eve of our side’s match against Partizan.

Besnik Hasi:

-On the side’s injury report:“This is one of the most beautiful fixtures one can play, in a fantastic stadium, with a great atmosphere. It is true that we have some injury issues, however we have a great team and I am sure we can deal with such a problem”.

-If Olympiacos is prepared for a rough match: “We are ready for a rough match ourselves. I have been here before and I know the atmosphere on the pitch. We are also ready to give a rough and tough display as well.”

-What would be the best result for his side: “Every result is very good as long as you have scored. If Mr Djukićsaid so, I concur».

-On the hotel where the Olympiacos squad is accommodated, which is located in an area of Beograd where Crvena zvezda (Red Star) fans have been gathered, and whether this was a deliberate move or not:“We thought of that because it is a big hotel. I have stayed here with other clubs as well. What you mentioned did not occur to us. We did so because it would help us make better arrangements for tomorrow’s fixture”.

-On Vukovic:“If a player is here, this means he is ready for tomorrow’s lineup”.

-On his good collaboration with Serbian players:“My side features players from Belgium, Brazil and Africa. Maybe it’s because I left home at a young age. I have learnt many languages and I have this asset when dealing with my players”.

-On Kosovo: “We are here to talk football, and this is what will happen. Let others who are responsible for this stuff to take of it”.

-On the close ties between Olympiacos and Red Star fans:“What is better is to have a packed stadium and a great atmosphere rather than a handful of spectators at the stands”.

Kostas Fortounis:

-If he thinks that the team is ready for the qualifiers compared to last year:“I do believe we are ready, this time, for the qualifying tie. We had a good preseason training, the team’s planning was good and great players have joined; we are ready for these matches”.

-On his opinion about Partizan:“We do respect them as a club. They have a great team that knows what they want on the pitch. We came here to play football and claim a good result that will give us the upper hand for the return match at home”.
