Following on from yesterdays game against Ilioupoli, two players have made positive statements to the press regarding Olympiakos and the opportunities that they had with the game itself.
Firstly, Giannis Potouridis followed on from his good appearance in the match by stating that he has now achieved a significant milestone in his career by turning out for the first team :-
"It was a critical match for us due to the knock-out result. Many chances that we created were not finished however we scored in the end and have qualified for the next round. Now we have a more difficult match with Panionios.
I am happy that I have played in the first team of Olympiakos. It was my dream and I am satisfied with my performance. Mr Valverde gave me this opportunity and I hope that I have vindicated his choice. I will continue to work and learn in the team".
His words were echoed by the Hungarian forward, Kristian Nemeth. Nemeth also made his first team debut yesterday and spoke about looking forward to this weekends game against Panionios hoping that he will not have to wait long for his next appearance in our shirt.
