Giannakopoulos: “At the end of the year the European Championship and the Championship” – Basketball – Greece

H Kai Panathinaikos Actor Held on Monday (3/4). Cake cutting To the new year, which was postponed upon his request Ergin Ataman After the defeat in Owaka by MarsWhere the Turkish coach replaced it with… training.

As usual, the strong man of the Greens… Dimitris GiannakopoulosHe gave a speech during the event and referred to it awakaon the progress his team has made so far Atamanbut also making promises in relation to them Titles Which the club expects to win by the end of the season.

Start by talking about the projects that have been implemented awaka But also for what is expected to happen. “Ten to 15 days ago, we were presented with the comprehensive study by a company that will be in charge of changing OAKA. I want to believe that what we will see next year has never been seen before in Europe, and perhaps even on the other side of the ocean.”“, he said among other things.

He then did not hesitate to comment on the progress the team has achieved so far Greece and Europe. “The greatest success of Mr. Ataman and the whole team is not that we finished third in the Europa League and first in the tournament, but that no one considers everything we have achieved so far a success. Everyone talks about the Final Four, everyone wants the seventh, everyone wants the championship. This is the great success he has achieved.” “Panathinaikos. Because we wanted to restore normalcy, to be able to compete again. And for the world to embrace the team, as it did.”He specifically said and added:

“When you see a team playing the way they played in Madrid… First, let me say that for me the best team in history is Maccabi under Gerson, then Jugoplastika and then Panathinaikos in 2009. Panathinaikos Madrid will win them all.” This means that the level has risen and by the end of the year we will find us with Europe and the championship. As a family we will be able to reach the end of the road. to the end”.

“First of all, I would like to wish health, love, happiness, luck and all the best to you and your loved ones. Because if we don’t have health and love, everything else doesn’t matter. At this time last year, we were almost in the last positions in the Euroleague, finishing in second place In the league after successive defeats to the eternal rival, we were the black sheep in the Euroleague and were chased from everywhere. The OEM works – I will use the expression – with security personnel and each of them needs to carry out 20-30 tasks. Michalis Georgantis, Giorgos Morias and many more people The Swiss, the Swedes, they did it all.

At some point, during a discussion with the government, the issue of OAKA was raised. There, different thoughts started running through my mind. Anyway, we sat down with Argyris Pedoulakis, who he knows I respect and love, and said we have to turn things around and put Panathinaikos back on top. But at the top at all levels and everywhere. With the help of the President, Mr. Parthenopoulos, our relations with the EuroLeague are at their best. We express our opinion on everything, and we are leaders in making decisions.

The second thing that had to be done was to put the world back together again. And the general public but also Door No. 13. I would like to say a big thank you to Dimitris Kondo who sat and talked with Door No. 13, with his own efforts, and there was a great willingness on their part to be close to us throughout this effort. I also want to thank them very much for being on the field as they should be. For the fans, we've set some goals with our finance and marketing department on how we can get them back on the field. Not only did we bring it, but at this moment we also broke previous records. This did not happen by chance, it happened primarily with the promotion of OAKA by Mr. Chrysochoos and his entire team, but it was done mainly by Mr. Biggio, who by scanning the entire market brought in top level executives so that we could put into practice what we dream of. : The stadium should not be just a match, but rather an experience for the whole family. It's a bet we've already won. And that's not all. And this is just the beginning.

Yes, OAKA has changed, it has become a nice family environment. 10-15 days ago, it was brought to us by Populous, a world-renowned company that will be doing the part of changing OAKA. I want to believe that what we will see next year has never been seen before in Europe, and perhaps even on the other side of the ocean.

Also, one of the bets of the year was to have a mobile application as everything in Panathinaikos can be done from there. The point is that the only thing you can do outside of the app is shout “PAO Ole” in the street. And from the presentation he made to me 15 days ago, I think we will win the bet on this one too. Ari, congratulations to you and the entire team on what has been accomplished so far.

But that's all nice, but if you don't have a team inside the four lines that can support all that, because that's why people come to the stadium. I think that the greatest success that Mr. Ataman and the whole team has achieved so far is not that we are currently in third place in the Europa League, and not that we are in first place in the League, but rather the fact that no one thinks about what we have achieved so far. Everywhere you read, everyone wants to get to the Final Four, everyone wants the championship, everyone wants seventh place. This is our great success. Because when we sat down last year we said that we want to bring Panathinaikos back to normal, so that it can be competitive, and for people to slowly come to the stadium and accept this effort. Not only is the team playing well, but we have achieved everything I mentioned above. May I applaud you all because this is your special effort.

But as my father taught me, the enemy of good is the best. For me, the best team in history was Maccabi led by Gerson, then there was Jugoplastika in the 90s and then Panathinaikos Berlin. From the picture I saw in Madrid, I think we will beat these three teams. But what does this mean? This means that the level has risen very high and by the end of the year we will find us in the European Championship and the Championship.

Once again I wish you, your families and your loved ones a Happy New Year, health, love, luck and all the best in the world. As a family we will be able to reach the end of the road, all the way…”
