With McNish against Tofas, PAOK – Takianos: “We ask for the support of the world, it gives us strength”


He didn’t have time to… celebrate the New Year and he has one of the most important matches of the year ahead of him PAOK!

The “two-headed man of the north” welcomes her to the “Palataki”. Tofa (19:30, COSMOTE SPORT 4), aiming to take the first step in the BCL play-ins, to secure a place in the “16” of the competition.

The positive thing is that the Jamani McNish he has fully overcome his injury, trained normally and will be available PAOKwhich he confirmed in his statements ahead of the match Fotis Takianos.

What the Greek technician said in detail:

For the New Year at the stadium: “Happy New Year everyone, let’s be healthy. This work we do has these. We have a very difficult schedule, it forced us to travel to Patras and back. We didn’t understand Christmas, nor do we understand New Year’s. There are priorities. Right now the priority is to stay focused, to leave the festive spirit of the days and concentrate on our work.”

On what the team should do differently in relation to the Prometheus matchup: “We are playing with a team that is at a high level and their quality is very good. With the addition of Denmon she has become more good and dangerous. They have a deep and quality roster, with size. We have discerned what the opponent’s strengths and weaknesses are, we want to limit them defensively and hit their weakness with our attack.

What we need to do in relation to the Prometheus game, is we need to be longer in the 40 minutes, in terms of the effectiveness of our choices and our decisions. In Prometheus there was a process where our players tried for 40 minutes, but we didn’t have the required concentration at some points. That’s something we talked about and I think we’ll be better.”

For home advantage and crowd support: “To be honest when the draw was made nobody thought we would be able to secure home advantage and be contenders to be in the last 16 of the Champions League. Step by step and fight by fight we made our way and grew our confidence.

We have strong confidence and strong will. We want a lot, first of all for the PAOK organization, for what we represent. Secondly, for the world, which lives and feeds through these victories and through the good course of the team. What is needed is the support of the world. It’s not an appeal. People from the extreme group understand that they must stand by. All we have to say is that when he supports us, especially in difficult moments of the game, we draw strength and can come back.”

On McNeese’s readiness even if it is calculated for tomorrow: “McNeice will be with us tomorrow as usual, it is reckoned. It’s back. He has been training normally for the last ten days and will be integrated into the team tomorrow.”
