«We will clinch the league title at home»
What Răzvan Lucescu said after PAOK’s 1-1 draw against AEL in Larissa for matchday 28 of Super League Souroti.
Regarding Vieirinha’s injury:
«We are very upset about André. He has had a fantastic season and has contributed hugely in our campaign. He is a role model for everyone, always motivating them. He is a big part of this team and I hope he realizes it«.
Regarding the draw against AEL:
«I am disappointed, because we really wanted to secure the league title. Actually we had already achieved that last Sunday, but the two-point deduction had us waiting for today’s match. We created opportunities, we didn’t score more goal and ended up conceding one, with their only chance in the game. We can celebrate the title in our next game, at home«.
Regarding the injuries:
«That’s football. There are different kinds of injuries. We need to accept it. Knee injuries, such as the ones suffered by Μaurício or André are more serious. Chuba has also been injured, but he resumes trainings tomorrow. Omar or Pedro are also injured. It´s been a very tough and demanding season, but we have the players to see us through. Those who featured today showed they are up to the task and can provide us with useful solutions«.
