Pre-match Press Conference against Luzern

Pre-match Press Conference against Luzern

Read below and watch the quotes from our club’s head coach, Mr Pedro Martins, and Vasilis Torosidis on the eve of the second leg against Luzern.

Pedro Martins:

On how easy is it to keep the players’ minds focused after the 4-0 of the first leg: Good evening. We are a new team with a new coach and new faces. All players have in their minds the goal of earning a spot in the team. This by itself is a motivation. Second of all, whoever plays in Olympiacos must play to win. Third of all, whoever cares about their career must be concentrated on every match, regardless of the competition or the match’s decisiveness. For these three reasons we must play this match to win it. Besides all this, as we know, football is prodigal in surprises. It’s a sport where overturns might happen. We’ve seen teams that achieved a good score afterwards having a bad one. We must all be concentrated as if the match is 0-0”.

If he knows in what condition the pitch is: Yes, I have the opportunity to watch the pitch. I know it’s not in the best conditions. Then again, our pitch was also not in the best conditions. These are the existing conditions in which we’ll play tomorrow”.

On the players he’ll use on tomorrow’s match:That’s something you’ll find out tomorrow”.

On Luzern’s appearance in the first match: “It was fairly balanced. The first 30 minutes were rather difficult. We were very effective. We scored on our first chance, the other two goals came fast enough and then everything was easy. We know all this also regarding tomorrow’s match and we must be really careful because Luzern is a team with quality, a good coach and they will try to overturn the result”.

Vasilis Torosidis:

On his expectations regarding tomorrow’s match: It’s a European match, we are Olympiacos and we must be serious. We must win in order to gain confidence, because we’re a new team. We must win in order to gain points as a Greek team, because we reached the point of playing qualifiers from July. We must gather points so as to enter directly in the group stages of both the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Europa League”.
