“Playing with many top teams is very beautiful and important”


After the last training session of the team at the facilities of Nea Mesimvria, the coach of PAOK, Razvan Lutsescu, gave the established press conference before each European game, in the interview room of Toumba stadium. The Romanian coach spoke to Greek and foreign journalists. Specifically he said:

-How he psychologically prepared the team:

“It’s not important to prepare the team. We all know that they are excited, there is a will and dreams I do not have to say many things, maybe all I said after Marseille is that we should have confidence, they do their job well but we must have the right mentality.

-For Milik and the doubt of his readiness:

“I do not think they rely on one player even if he is of a high standard and has other quality players. This is how football is, so I believe that there will be a remarkable replacement “.

-For what the course in Europe leaves for the team:

“It’s very beautiful and it’s a very important game for the team. Playing with many top teams is a great experience. It was important to adapt. It is different from the championship in Europe. You need to deal with situations faster. It’s a nice experience to be so far away. We have a lot of enthusiasm, we know that the game is very difficult, but we will give it our all, with the help of our people, Toumba “.

-For that there is no VAR:

“It’s difficult for the referees, because they usually have a VAR. It is difficult for teams that play with high defense. But we must forget it. We have to react correctly and get the qualification “.

-For the crowded Toumba:

“They know very well what to do. To push us to victory and even when you are a great player, when you face Toumba it is definitely difficult “.

-For his reaction after the game in Velodrome that he called on the French not to come to Thessaloniki.

“You tell me that these were shocking but not what the French did?” Should I calm down? Not Marseille that had to be edited. Is this the second time that PAOK reaches 8 and what happened is my fault? what I said was very correct. Toumba will be hot and will put pressure on the players of Marseille. Better that he will not have Marseille fans. You should tell the Marseille fans to be better and Marseille not to attack me but her world. The game is important for us. We enjoy this and with the power of Toumba to qualify and show everyone that we have the best fans and the fans of Marseille “.

-For the atmosphere that existed before the game and the statement of Sampaoli and what will be the last thing he will say to his players:

“They played better in the first match. Let’s not forget that they are second in France behind Paris, but we have our mentality and I do not believe that these games are judged in detail. Even with 1% we will go to the end. This does not happen often, what happens this year, now we are in front of our world and we will give it our all “.

-For the renewal and appearance of El Kaddouri in France:

“I love this child very much and he knows it. He has a lot of respect, he has the right mentality, we have had nice experiences together. “We all have a great will to qualify and continue in Europe, but we must also stay focused on the championship.”
