Iliopoulos about Marinakis: “He was my closest friend, he became my best man, but now we are on different paths”

THE Marios Iliopoulos at his first press conference as its owner AEK was asked about him Vangelis Marinakis and his family’s relationship with Olympiakos.

The administrative leader of the “Union” stated that 35-40 years ago he was a friend of the strongman of the “red and whites”, then he became his best man, however, the last 18-20 years have taken different paths.

In life when you are not honest you find them in front of you. I never want to be accused of telling lies or wild stories. Since you didn’t say that at the beginning the reality is this. Marinakis was my best friend 35-40 years ago, my best man 20 years ago.

In the last 18-20 years we have taken different paths. We may meet 1-2 times a year in places where ship owners gather. My brother Antonis supports Olympiakos. Twins with different views are born here. He is Olympiacos and I am AEK“, while to a question about whether he would sit with Marinakis at the same table:

It goes without saying that for the progress of Greek football we should take a step of goodwill. I don’t have bad relationships. In the context of what you say, I congratulated him for winning the Conference from Olympiakos, he did not congratulate me for taking the reins of AEK».
