Lucescu: «We must view every match as a cup final»
Quotes from coach Razvan Lucescu following the draw result for the 3rd qualifying round of the UEFA Europa Conference League, exclusively via paokfc.gr.
«It’s positive that we already know our potential opponents and we have the opportunity to prepare properly for the games. We must know very well that every game is difficult and take the utmost care to make sure we start the season with maximum concentration, and of course, have the desire to achieve the best possible result.
«As football is today, you can not have too much confidence against any opponent, because if you are not careful you will get hurt. We have to see the two games as finals in themselves. In general, this season we have to learn to see every game as a cup final. That’s the mentality we have to have both on and off the pitch.»
