Read below words of our side’s players after the end of the match against Rijeka.

Mohamed Ben:

-If he is satisfied with the final 2-1: Yes because we managed to win. Tonight, we wanted to get this win really badly, we played before our fans, we wanted it that much. For my part, I tried very much and I feel unlucky for not scoring; however, I feel really happy for being able to help the team win”.

-If now, following this 2-1, the odds change for the return match in Croatia:No. I believe that the odds are on our side. We will go to Croatia to get a good result, win and qualify. Tonight, we wanted to perform well. I am glad we managed to display well, we should have scored more goals; however, we will go there to win and qualify”.

Odjidja Ofoe:

-What is the feeling of scoring a goal in the G. Karaiskakis?It is a really beautiful feeling produced when one scores in this stadium. I am really happy for this goal because it means a lot for us and I think that I can enjoy it now”.

-If you feel optimistic following tonight’s win and Olympiacos display ahead of the return match:We are talking about a strong opponent which we knew since the beginning; the important thing is that, as a result of our display, we also showed we are getting there to become a proper team. I think that if we head to the 2nd leg with the same state of mind and keep in the match the same intensity like the one we have during training, we can surely deliver. The important thing is to believe in ourselves, to have faith in qualifying and fly to Croatia in order to play the way we know”.

Panagiotis Retsos:

-What are taking out of tonight’s match? It was a very special match for our team. We finally did it and got the win on the last minute. Nothing else matters but the fact we won tonight. We deserved it, we got it after creating many chances; we saw that our opponents managed to score once although they built so few goal-scoring ones. We were trailing back. But they got that red card which was very important for us and we managed to turn the match around. Having said that, we now turn our eyes to the fixture against Larissa and then, on Tuesday, we will make this one step to bring Olympiacos where it belongs”.

– Does your display tonight give you grounds to be optimistic about the match in Croatia next week? I believe so much we will qualify. Apart from me, so do my teammates and the entire club. We will go there, give everything we got and keep our belief in qualifying “.

– There are rumors about you; clubs from abroad, millions of euros on the table etc. To what extent do all these affect you, if at all? I am not affected at all. Currently, I am a player of Olympiacos. My only concern is to play football; I don’t want any fuss to be made. I won’t be troubled by this issue until there is something formal. I belong to Olympiacos, I am focused on getting the qualification and I truly don’t care about anything else right now”.
