Aris coach made statements at the press conference after his team’s victory over PAS Giannina, Akis Manzioscharacterizing the three points as important, both for the score and for the psychology of his footballers, while he also spoke about Panagidis, Darida, Carlson
In detail what Aris’ coach stated at the press conference:
“We played well for the most part against PAS who played massive defense with many players in the lower third. In the first half, we didn’t have the elements we wanted to break down the opponent’s defense. We didn’t have good positions and a fast pace. In the second half, things were different. We had good substitutions, correct decisions, we found the goals and we could have achieved more. Grades and of course victory are important for the children’s psychology”.
For the selection of Panagidis as a midfielder: “It’s a matter of concern because with the injuries we have, we don’t have a player for that position. And that’s how you look to find a player. Rightfully, Panagidis got the place in the starting line-up because he is a kid who works, we believe in him and give him games”,
For Carlson: “He is an important player for the team and I think he can give more. I think he was in the mood, he got runs, he just didn’t get the game. He had a long time to play but the team supports him and waits for him because they rely a lot on him”.
For Fabiano’s punishment and Odubazzo’s injury: “Moses will have an x-ray tomorrow. I think it’s an injury or rather I’m hoping it won’t be a more serious injury. As far as Fabiano is concerned, I haven’t thought about where he won’t play.”.
On Darida’s performance: “Since the day I came, Darida has been in trouble. He played with Asteras, did not compete with PAOK and then played consecutive 90 minutes. I have said it before that it is forbidden to not play Darida as he is a very important player for us. He had an injury, during the break he overcame it, he freshened up and now we see the player we really enjoy watching.”.
