Kalmazidis: “We were written off, but we did our duty”


The coach of Panathinaikos presented himself after the victory over Olympiakos, happy for winning the championship. Yannis Kalmazidis.

The technician of the “clover”, after thanking the people who gave a thunderous “attendance” at the closed OAKA, emphasized that his team did its duty even though many had written it off, while he then spoke about his thoughts regarding with the planning of the next season.

His statements in detail:

“We did our duty, it is an unprecedented situation for almost all the girls, for the first time there are so many people in a nice and big stadium. That’s what I was trying to get across to the girls all the previous days, but no matter what we say you can’t deal with it and it showed in the first set that we were tight. Little by little we got into the game and were stronger and stronger.

We were written off, but we don’t care what other people say about us, we didn’t do well in the Cup final, but I saw that there is the potential and the material to do more. We’ve taken steps to be stronger, it’s definitely hard to stay on top.

I have a lot of things on my mind, it’s the first time I’m in a club in women’s volleyball, we’ve been improving little by little, there’s still more room for improvement. Girls need to get into professional levels of how they should approach volleyball.”
