The great double on her AEK is now a thing of the past for him Olympicwhere everyone has turned their eyes to the premiere of her playoffs Stoiximan Super League by Bullet.
In view of the away match, o Mitchell made statements to Cosmote TV about what changed after the victory at OPAP Arena and what is to come for the “red and whites”.
What he said in detail:
On the atmosphere in the team after the victory over AEK: “It is better to work happy, but excessive euphoria needs caution. I will tell you exactly what I told my football players. Before we played with AEK, people believed in a rate of about 25% that we would win the championship. After the match with AEK the percentage rose to around 60 to 70% and after the draw this percentage exceeded 80%. We will make a big mistake if we believe that the percentages can give us any advantage.
For six months now we have learned that we should not look left and right, but only ahead. As I always tell my players, we have to have the utmost respect for the opponent. They deserve it because they are in the playoffs. We must be very focused on what we want to do and not disappoint our fans who will come to Volos again to support us.”
For Olympiacos’ chances of winning the championship: “I won’t tell you now. I say it from the beginning. I have not been caught up in optimism because we beat a good team like AEK. I always thought we had a chance. Right now we are not dependent on anyone. It is in our hand. If we win all our games we will be champions. But we have to play well and with respect towards all teams. The coach is never an optimist, nor a pessimist, he is a realist. They called me crazy and now they call me a magician.”
On whether they have calculated how many points they need to reach their goal:
“The points we need right now are the three in Sunday’s match.”
As for whether he expects the same match in Volos as in the regular season:
“I hope we can repeat the same result, but we will make a big mistake if we believe that such a result will come without effort.”
To support the world: “It is very important for us. I don’t remember exactly the date when we played again in Volos, but then the players saw and understood that slowly people believe that something good is happening here. In this sense the world is ahead of us. He believes it too much. We must always be united and all together because when that happens everything is much better.”
For the problems he faces: “THE Biel and Huang are also punished Embilla he is still injured. From what I see in training, everyone else wants to play.”
On whether he is worried by the simultaneous absence of Embillas and Huang:
“Of course they are both important players, but if we have achieved one thing it is that there is competition within the team. Everyone wants to play and everyone can handle it. THE Samaseku he is such an example that every time he was needed he responded very well and he will continue to do so.”
