Among other things, the statements of Irini Karipidis

Regarding the financial statements of Al-Merreikh Club: Aris is an important part of the living history of Thessaloniki and therefore deserves respect. On this basis, our management can only be what our team deserves: wise and purposeful to achieve the best possible result. I will tell you as an example that after taking over the administration, debts arose to the previous administrations amounting to 6.8 million euros, and although it was not our duty, we were forced to pay it. In addition, we have effectively managed and dealt with the club’s financial obligations during the very difficult Covid-19 crisis, so the club’s financial position is better than ever.».

For sale in Palma:As you know, in modern professional football trading, football is vital for all clubs and it takes a lot of planning and patience to achieve effective deals. This means the right time to give to one player and the right time to take another, and obviously the commitment and difficult negotiations to do so financially effectively. The appropriate time is determined by the sum of many factors, not just one factor. So I tell you that whether in the case of Mancini or in the case of Luis Palma, who Celtic bought for 4 million, while we got him from Vida for only 200 thousand, but also in other cases such as Mateo Garcia, Mazico, etc. etc., Aris has benefited a lot, not only in revenue but also in communication in the international football market».
