In detail, what Mitchell told Nova:
For the injuries faced by the Olympiakos team: “Apart from Marcelo and Cisse who have muscle problems, everyone else is available. We have 23 footballers plus three goalkeepers to choose from for the list.”
For players who left: “That would be like putting the blame on the players who left and we don’t want that. We respect them immensely. Since the preparation we did for the World Cup, there is better quality and our message gets through better to the players. Since I have been in charge of the team for four months now, I think many things have improved and I say this with all humility and modesty. I am not saying this to support my work but because things have changed. The training is better and a lot has changed.”
For Kanos and Butucci: “They are footballers who are competitive in the game and have proven it. It is good for us to have alternatives and we will take advantage of them. We have proven both in the league and the Cup that we make changes, change players and use many alternatives. This is the best way to exploit our roster. The arrivals of Ramon, Butucci and Sergi Canos help us strengthen this line.”
On Olympiakos’ protest about the referee and what he knew: “No, now I’m finding out. My concern is to prepare the team and training. In other matters, I completely respect the decisions of the administration and the referees.”
