The MVP award of the 2nd matchday was awarded to Giannis Skondras playing for PAOK, who topped the competition organised by Super League, the Panhellenic Association of Professional Players (PSAP) and NOVA.
After the ceremony, the PAOK player stated:
"I am really happy to be receiving this award and even happier that my team won this particular match. I work hard in every training so I can do my best on the pitch. This is the first time I receive this award. I hope to win more awards in the future, but to do this I need to be focused and work hard."
On the fact that he was voted as MVP while playing as a right back and not as a stopper:
"I will play in the position my coach tells me to play, be it a right back or a stopper. I do not really mind."
On scoring his first goal as a PAOK player:
"I did not manage to score a goal last season. I have now fully acclimatised to the club and hope to continue in the same way."
On PAOK's display so far:
"We did not start well, but we then proved that this is a clockwork team. Given the work we are doing, the future will be even better."
On PAOK's style this year:
"It's really soon to be talking about a certain style for PAOK. We are definitely faster and more resilient in comparison to last year. I believe that in the middle of the season, people will be able to see our work and that we will prove our efforts on the pitch."
On the Europa League draw:
"We cannot tell whether this is an easy or difficult draw. I personally believe that all matches are difficult. We have to be focused so we can have the proper display on the pitch."
On the goal of PAOK this season:
"When your name is PAOK, your goal is always to be in the first three places of the classification list, to play to win trophies and to have a good European campaign. We treat each match separately, we see it as a final and if we play the way we are supposed to play, we will do well."
On the differences following the arrival of coach Anastasiadis:
"Each coach has a certain philosophy. There are differences compared to last season, however the important thing is that we are a family. The coach is first and foremost a man, he explains everything and tries to get his players to give their 100% on the pitch."
On his personal goals:
"To be one of the starting 11 in PAOK and to win titles. I had a good start in the championship and I need to work hard to have a similar performance in all matches. The important thing is to have duration."
On the prospect of being asked to play in the Greek National Team:
"I am always with the National Team. I will be happy to be asked to play for the team, but it's not on my mind."
On how he has acclimatised to PAOK:
"Any player with an ego, wants to try harder when he is left out. I try to correct the mistakes I made last year and to have a proper display."
