Lucescu: “The image of my players is fantastic – Baba will be fine”


THE Razvan Lucescu saw him PAOK to touch a great qualification against Panathinaikoshowever his team finally bowed out on penalties.

After the Leoforos match, the Romanian appeared satisfied with the image of his players, while also referring to the Baba’s condition.

What he said in detail:

“Such situations exist in football. On the one hand, it’s hard to handle such bitterness, such upset. On the other hand, we were eliminated after a short period of not playing as we should. We dominated the game, got the win in normal time, made it 2-0 and when we were down to ten men, we showed that we are a team that can play good football against any opponent.

The players are well aware from yesterday that we came here to qualify. Things started very well for us, we made it 2-0, but Rahman Baba got injured. In penalties there are emotions, anything can happen and we missed qualification. Tonight the players showed a fantastic image. This must be our guide. We have to continue as we were until the first game against Panathinaikos at home.

I don’t know how he is now (Baba included), but I was informed during the match that it is not something serious. It’s a problem he’ll have for the next few days, but he’ll be absolutely fine. However, health comes first.”
