The MVP and the Best Goal awards of matchday 17 were awarded to Dimitris Kyriakidis and Farley Rosa respectively, who topped the competition organised by Super League, the Panhellenic Association of Professional Players (PSAP) and NOVA.
After the ceremony, Dimitris Kyriakidis stated the following:
"This award was combined with a victory against a really good opponent, therefore it's even more important. We really wanted this victory, we hadn't won in a long time and I believe that it will also boost our psychology. We have a very good roster and I hope that the match against Atromitos will be a new beginning for everyone so that we can get the team where it deserves to be. We must believe in ourselves again and start being successful."
On the fact that this is the first time he wins this award:
"The fact that I have won many awards is pleasant because they are the result of hard work and I am certain more will come. I dedicate this one to myself because it is a reward for my everyday work. I also dedicate it to the family of Panetolikos that needed this result; and to my teammates for their effort. I also wish to congratulate Rosa on the exquisite goal he scored and was rightly voted as best goal of the matchday."
On the save he believes stood out:
"They are all special because they came at a point when if you concede a goal, then the match outlook may change. I will talk about the penalty kick because the opponent had the advantage and not the goalkeeper. By saving this penalty, I gave courage to everyone to hold the score and reach victory. Warda and I were teammates in the past, but he does not maintain a consistent position when scoring foul or penalty kicks. I decided to go left, luck was on my side, I saved the kick and everything turned out fine."
Farley Rosa said:
"This is a happy moment. I was really happy about the goal, but I was mostly happy because my team won the three points that are very important for the campaign. It was amazing because it was my birthday that day. This goal was a blessing from God. I thank the fans that voted for me, it gave me great joy."
On the importance of victory:
"The presence of the new coach was very important since he only had three days at his disposal to prepare us for a match against a difficult opponent. We managed to win the match and with his assistance and the psychological boost from this victory, we will have the opportunity to work from now on in order to improve more."
On whom he dedicates the goal to:
"I have scored better goals as a player of Panetolikos, but the fans voted for this one. I dedicate it to my family, my girlfriend and all my teammates that helped me win my first award."
On Kyriakidis receiving the MVP award at the same time:
"It is important when your club wins two awards in one match. Yes, I believe that my teammate really deserved this award."
