Lucescu: “We approached the game as we should – I understand Lyratzis’ decision”


Statements at the press conference after PAOK’s comfortable victory over Panserraikos for the Betsson Greek Cup were made by Rasvan Lucescuwho spoke about the correct way in which his players approached the game, while also referring to Lyratzis’ decision to leave on loan.

What the PAOK coach said in detail:

On what he keeps from the match: “The result. Because it allows us to take a huge step towards our goal, which is to qualify for the semi-finals of the institution. The second was that the players showed responsibility, seriousness and the right motivation, despite the fact that Panserraikos missed important opportunities at the start. When you’re focused, humble and responsible, that’s the way you should approach games, like we did with Panserraikos”.

For the Lyratzis case and his borrowing: “What can I say? He wanted to go play, he had that option, personally I would prefer him to stay here. I understand the decision he made”.

For Panserraikos and if they can stay in the division: “They are one of the teams that have potential and the right mentality, aggression, they run a lot, a team that doesn’t let the opposition play easily. If you analyze the results of Panseraikos, even against bigger opponents, they either got a result or lost hard. I am sure, I have no doubts, that he will stay in the category and maybe finish higher than the last places”.
