Ivić: «Victory of great value»

Here is what head coach Vladan Ivić said after the final whistle of the UEFA Europa League matchday 2 encounter against FC Slovan Liberec.

29.09.2016

On the early goal of the Czech side:

«It was a momentary lapse of concentration. Our positioning was off and we conceded that goal. We must be careful in the future not to let it happen again.»

On PAOK winning despite not performing very well:

«It was a very important victory – we came here to claim these three points. We got a good result that will boost us. Such wins build self-confidence and we will take advantage of this three-pointer, despite not being very good. I don’t disagree with you. There was fatigue, we have players with many back-to-back games on their feet. Our rivals were better in physical condition terms and it was obvious in the second half.»

On whether PAOK were lucky:

«That’s football. Sometimes we play well, create chances and don’t win. There are also times, like today, that just a few chances are enough for us to win. In football, it’s all about the result. I won’t lie to you –we all want to perform well, but such victories are extremely valuable.»

On Athanasiadis’s goals:

«They will definitelyhelp him. Goals boost a forward’s self-confidence. Klaus is working, is making a big effort and today he gave us three points. We expect Stefanos to provide goals.»

On the objective of qualification:

«The next two matches may clear the situation, or not. We still have four encounters ahead of us in the group and we take it one by one. Up next, we will be tested in a tough away match at Qarabağ, just like this one was. As for ACF Fiorentina, they have high-class, expensive players.«
