SEPC supports Bartzokas: “Insults and complaints through social media have no place in sports”


By his side Giorgos Bartzokas stands the Association of Greek Basketball Coaches.

THE SEPC with his announcement, he criticized the posts of Dimitris Giannakopoulos as well as the announcements of KAE Panathinaikos AKTOR at the expense of the Greek technician, stressing that “Insults and complaints against people through social media and announcements are not a solution”.

The relevant announcement in detail:

“On the occasion of the recent posts of Mr. Dimitris Giannakopoulos and the announcement issued by KAE Panathinaikos against the member of the Greek Football Association, Mr. Giorgos Bartzokas, we would like to point out the following:

SEPC supports its member, Mr. Giorgos Bartzokas.

It is a fact that matches between top teams are characterized by tension and disagreements.

Regardless of the justified or not of the intensity and the forms of its expression, everything that happens in a match should stay there and end when the 40-year-old completes it. For everything else, there are the competent bodies and statutory bodies to decide on the penalties, if they are deemed necessary.

Insults and complaints against individuals through social media and announcements are not a solution, nor do they help sports. Instead, they escalate disputes and add more fuel to the fire.

All this has no place in sport, which should unite and set an example for our society. Fanaticism and aggressive behaviors lead to deviations and consequences, which can turn out to be unpredictable.

For this reason, we ask everyone to act with more prudence and calmness, both during the games and after their completion.”
