Quotes by Mr. Martins

Read the quotes from our team’s coach on the press conference after the match against Dudelange.

On how important is for the future that Olympiacos scored so many goals: “It clearly has to do with efficiency. If you compare the two matches with Dudelange, they were similar in terms of creating opportunities, but today we were more efficient. We opened the score early and then the opportunities turned into goals. That was different. We want it to continue and not to be lost, because we need it. We have a lack of efficiency in many games and we want to continue like today. As we’ve done so far, we want to show our quality and we’ve been showing improvement game by game”.

What boost does this result give regarding Panathinaikos: “In terms of self-confidence, of course it helps us. It’s good to come from a positive result. As for the motivation, we already had it in our minds. We must be careful about the match against Panathinaikos. On Sunday we will face a completely different opponent, it will have another kind of difficulty. Today it wasn’t easy, but we made it easy because we were serious and steady. We got a result that gives us confidence regarding the derby. We are going to play a difficult match against an organized opponent and we must be cautious”.

His message towards the fans for Sunday’s match against Panathinaikos: “As I said to my players earlier, we want to win on Sunday, because, apart from being a derby, there will be three important points in dispute. We need the victory and the result. We know that the fans will be on our side and we, on our part, will retribute their support. We’ll try to get the result and concentrate on this match”.

On the roles that Natcho and Fortounis had: “Kostas scored two goals because he had the opportunities. The attributes of Natcho’s game helped, as we saw, and the performance between them was efficient. This doesn’t mean that when Guilherme, Bouchalakis and Touré will play, we don’t want to see something similar. We want to take advantage of the characteristics of each player. We do rotation and this competitiveness helps them to develop. We try to get from each one as much as we can”.

Whether Natcho’s injury is serious: “We’ll have to wait for the following 48 hours. Of course I’m worried, just like in Nahuel’s case, as well as Guerrero’s. We want all the players to be well and not to have our options reduced. Unfortunately we have to find solutions”.

His opinion on what Olympiacos can do in the group, considering its current standings:We’ll wait until the last match day. The things are tight. We’ll have to wait and see on the last day which teams will get to qualify”.
