Manzios: “Let’s find our stability – Olympiacos is the most formed team in the league”


On the fact that Mars must find its stability, stood the Akis Manzios in his statements ahead of the match between the “yellows” and Olympiakos, on Wednesday (24/4, 19:30) at “Kl. Vikelides”.

In fact, the technician of Thessaloniki on the one hand gave “congratulations” in Piraeus both for the qualification to the “4” of European Conference Leagueas well as for its enormous success K19 in the Youth League final. On the other hand, he characterized the team of Jose Luis Mendiliber as the most seasoned in the championship.

In detail, Akis Manzios spoke to NOVA about:

-the game against Olympiakos:This is a very difficult game against Olympiakos. I think that at the moment they are the most in-form team in the league, with a new coach, who is doing an excellent job.

At this point I would like to give “congratulations” to Olympiakos for qualifying to “4” of the Europa Conference League. Really, I hope it goes to the end of the event! Also, to give “congratulations” to the Olympiakos juniors, K19. Many “congratulations” to these children and their coaches! I hope that we will continue to have other young children, young Greeks, that others will reach and become European champions.

Our game will be difficult and demanding. We need to find our stability as a team and increase our good intervals during the race, to be able to be highly competitive and claim the positive result».

-what should Aris do differently compared to the other three matches of the current season against Olympiakos, in which they experienced defeats, in order to reach a positive result tomorrow:Each of the three previous games against Olympiakos was different. The first was very early since we had taken over. The second was after qualifying against AEK in the Cup and that had an impact. This will now be a different game, with different features. Opposite us we find Olympiakos perhaps in its best condition this season. He wants us to show great discipline, concentration and will for the positive result».

– the absences that Ares may have in tomorrow’s match:We have issues, which we will evaluate. We have enough problems it’s true and we have to see which players cannot be available».

-what should Aris do, in order to form a team for the final of the Cup: Everyone in the team is waiting for the Cup, but they realize that the games in the playoffs are also extremely demanding. We are playing against big opponents and we have to be competitive and not show intervals and image that we have had in matches in this process, which do not represent what we have shown throughout the league. We must therefore be competitive in all four games remaining until the end of the playoffs and do our best. From there we have to concentrate on the Cup final as the weather approaches so that the team is ready».

– the importance of Ares starting to get positive results again, so that the mood in the locker room rises:Indeed, we want positive results, which always create a good psychological mood. However, in everyone’s mind a Cup final is a completely different game. It is a day game, in which how well you have prepared for it matters. As far as we’re concerned, it’s a game we want very much».
