The MVP award of the 28th matchday was awarded to Marcus Berg playing for Panathinaikos, who topped the competition organised by Super League, the Panhellenic Association of Professional Players (PSAP) and NOVA. The award was presented by Nestoras Gekas, a junior player of Panathinaikos.
After the ceremony, the Panathinaikos player stated:
On receiving the MVP award of the 28th matchday:
"Of course I am happy. As I said when receiving my previous award, it is always nice to be awarded and I appreciate the fact that the fans voted for me. I am really happy."
On whether this award is a reward for his efforts throughout the season:
"I believe that this award belongs to the whole team who made a beautiful effort and we won the match against Aris. I am certainly happy to be awarded, however I believe that the whole team plays well and when this happens, it's easy to achieve a good performance on a personal level. I am happy and grateful for this prize and I believe that we did a good job as a whole."
On his hat-trick in the match against Aris, his first hat-trick as a Panathinaikos player after eight years:
"Of course it felt nice. It's always nice to score and a hat-trick makes a striker feel great. I am really happy to have achieved this, however, as I said before, you sometimes score and sometimes you don't. I scored three goals this time and I am really happy about it. I was focused and my teammates gave me good passes, this is why it was easy."
On whether he aims at becoming the Super League top goal scorer of the season:
"No, this was not my target at the beginning of the season. My only target was to be in a good physical condition and to help the team. I have achieved it so far and I am happy about it. It's of course nice to be on the top, but I do not care whether I will be the top goal scorer or not. I want my side to have good displays and to accomplish something. This is my goal. To accomplish something as a team.
On receiving this award by a young player coming from the Panathinaikos Academies and what he advises young footballers:
"We all know how many players come from the Academy and are part of the first team. They have their shot, they work hard and this is what they must do. It's not easy, however I believe that the players from the Academies know what they must do. They must be focused every day on what they do in order to improve. This is the only way to go on. By working hard and staying focused on their target. They know that it's a long way, however the most important thing is to take small steps so you can eventually achieve your goal."
Nestoras Gekas stated the following:
"I am really honoured to be presenting this award to Marcus. I believe he is one of the best players in the Super League and I hope he will stay in Greece for many years to come. The good thing about Marcus is that he is interested in the team and not in himself. I hope he will be with us for many years," said the young goalkeeper about the Swedish striker, and also talked about his signing with Panathinaikos:
"It is definitely a unique feeling. I am really happy, but it takes a lot of work to reach the desired level and to be able to play in the first team."
