In the upcoming (19/2, 16:00) match between Olympiakos and Lamia for the 23rd matchday of the Stoiximan Super League, the Mitchellemphasizing the need for his team to get the three points of victory.

Moreover, he spoke in the best words about him Sergi Kanos while he emphasized that Marcelo and Retsos remain injured.

In detail what the coach of Olympiakos said:

For the match against Lamia: “Winning always helps to prepare for the next game, especially when you’ve scored six goals. However, we always work and prepare for the next game with the aim of winning, whatever result we had in the previous match. We know how important Sunday’s game is. We have the utmost respect for Lamia and there is nothing else on our mind than winning this game.

Our basis in all games, against any team, is that we must respect the opponent. Lamia is a team that has changed its coach for the third time. Now they have a coach who was in Kallithea and had done a very good job aiming for promotion. All footballers want to win when they play with Olympiakos, but we really need the three points”.

On whether his team’s mind is on the derby ahead: “My players know very well what they have to do. We have spoken to them and warned them. There is no better way to go into a derby having won your previous game. That’s what we think. That’s what I told them. All the training, all the preparation we have done is about the only match we have in mind and that is Sunday’s game against Lamia”.

For Kanos: “Sergi Kanos is exactly the type of player that Olympiacos needs. Not only the current Olympiacos, but also the Olympiacos of the past and the Olympiacos of the future. He really is a player who under any circumstances, even when something tragic has happened to him, is always here willing to help the team. Immediately after his mother’s funeral, he called me and said that “on Sunday I will be there and I want to play. He is one of those football players who does not use excuses even when they exist, so the coach knows that he will always be there for to give everything he has to the team”.

For injury problems: “Biel has some muscle problems, but we believe he will be on the mission. Also Retsos and Marcelo will be out due to their injuries”.
