The Best Goal award for the 23rd matchday was awarded to Dimitris Salpingidis playing for PAOK, who topped the competition organised by Super League, the Panhellenic Association of Professional Players (PSAP) and NOVA. The award was presented by Mr Thanasis Karamitrousis, one of the sponsors of FC PAOK.
After the ceremony, the PAOK player stated:
"It definitely was a beautiful goal and I am happy to be receiving this award. However, I cannot say whether this was the best goal I have scored in my career, people will be the judge of this. It is a matter of opinion."
- Dimitris, are you now in best form since the beginning of this season?
"I always try to do my best. There are definitely times that I am in form, but I do not wish to be thinking like this. What I am interested in is for my club to win and to help it as much as I can."
- However, it is true that fans prefer to see a positive outcome combined with beautiful goals…
"The ideal combination is winning and scoring beautiful goals at the same time. Our first goal is to win, which is the important thing. It is definitely very nice to see beautiful goals and I hope that the best goal award will be given to a PAOK player each week."
