Martinez: “One of the reasons I came to Olympiakos is the derby, but it won’t determine anything”


After the break due to the national teams, the action in Stoiximan Super League returns, and indeed with an “eternal” derby (22/10, 19:30, COSMOTE SPORT 1HD).

THE Diego Martinez spoke to COSMOTE TV and emphasized that the derby with him Panathinaikos is one of the reasons he came to Olympicbut emphasized that this particular match is not going to determine anything in the battle for the title.

In detail what he said to the COSMOTE TV camera:

“It’s a great moment and it’s one of the reasons I came here. To live such intense moments. We are proud to represent Olympiakos in this derby. We have done everything to prepare as well as possible. We want to put on a very good performance in front of our home crowd and give them joy by winning the three points.

There are always many things you can improve. That’s what we’re constantly working on. Over time and playing big games like that are things that help you get better as a team. As time goes by we get to know each other better and that helps us. This week we used it to work on our fitness and tactics and we had the opportunity to improve. We are here to make the team as good as possible. There are players who are injured and will not be available for this match. But we are happy that we have a big roster and we can take advantage of it to be as we should be.

I’ll wait until the last minute to make the decision about who will be on the mission and who won’t, so I don’t know to tell you. What I want is for the players in there to be in the best possible condition. We know that these games are very balanced and the details are what make the difference. We have been working on these details this week and hopefully this work will help us get the result we want.

It really is a very important game. It means a lot to our world, to us and to the whole team. Emotionally, this is a very important match and moreover for us every time it is important to get the three points. However, no, I cannot say that this is a decisive match because whatever happens on Sunday, from the next day we will continue to try to gain points. The finals and all title-deciding matches are in May. As you said, we are still in October. Yes, it’s important to win this special game, but it won’t determine anything about who gets the title.”
