Mr. Evangelos Marinakis’ statement

Read here Mr. Evangelos Marinakis’ statement after OLYMPIACOS match against Tottenham.

“Today Olympiacos played really well against a very strong team that is worth a billion. Kane alone costs twice as much as the whole Olympiacos’ team. This shows that today we have made a great feat. If we look at the statistics and the plays, Olympiacos should have won. He showed that he has a great spirit. In two minutes he was behind 0-2. However you fight, you create opportunities, balls hitting the post, against opponents who are famous and have achieved, with their effort, great accomplishments, such as playing the Champions League final. A team that is full of international players.

We’re very happy, the fans enjoyed and hopefully we’ll continue like this. We all feel that this team has confidence. Until the last minute it doesn’t give up. We missed opportunities even just before the end.

The presence of the fans was magnificent as always. I thank them very much for that. I saw the players before the match and at half-time. I told them not to give up and that they must give all they’ve got to win. And they did. The sky is our limit. We don’t stop dreaming and we move on steadily, all together. You see that the fans love this team and we all feel proud.

Olympiacos has a very good team. See how many international players it has. It has three internationals in the European Champions, the Portuguese national team, but also in many other countries. This year we once again made a financial effort, but it doesn’t matter, we’re very happy with the performances we’ve been watching.

I’m a fan. First of all, the league. However, our presence in Europe is also something that we are very pleased with, because you see that you are facing huge clubs and you’re being treated as a huge club. Tottenham didn’t come here for holidays. They played strong and ran a lot, even more than we did, if you look at the statistics. We are very happy and will continue like this.”
