At the press conference, the coach of the “black and white” focused on the most important points of PAOK’s defeat by Aris. Aris Lykogiannis, who pointed out that it is unlikely to beat a team when it has made 18 mistakes.
In detail what he said at the press conference:
“Congratulations to Aris for the victory. Throughout, in a close game he was better at the little things that define a game in such a loud atmosphere. The most important thing was our many errors and it was the most crucial element of the statistics. I find it impossible to win with 18 mistakes. And 10 missed shots shows a lot.
We shot extremely well for an away game. Every time we were one click away from putting extra pressure on Mars, then our choices were very poor. In the last minute Aris found some personal phases and reached the victory.
The issue of energy was undeniable. It’s the sixth game in 14 days. We also had the trips to Lithuania, with a difficult schedule. Energetically, we were not fresh. There is a slight deformation, Riley played without training, he was at 70%. We did our best.
I trust the children and our work. We knew our schedule was tough and there was a tremendous workload. Now we go to a more… regular schedule. We will have a whole week to prepare for each opponent. Aris had 7-8 days to prepare this game, we just three.
For the challenge he requested in 3′: “I was 100% sure the ball was ours, as the guys told me. In the end, this challenge I have seen them change their decision only in our own match against Peristeri”.
