The MVP of the 13th matchday was awarded to Panagiotis Glikos 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 Lazaros Hadavaridis, one of the sponsors of FC PAOK.
After the ceremony, the PAOK player stated:
"My joy is the same, since it is the first time I win an award and after all these years of playing it never ceases to be important. Moreover, my injury is not serious and I will only be out for one week at the most, therefore I will be ready to play in the next match."
- Will this affect your rhythm?
"No, I do not think so since one week is not very long and you do not get out of rhythm. You may lose a match… well, nothing more."
- What distinguishes a goalkeeper especially in view of his critical position?
"I believe it is definitely concentration. It is first a matter of concentration and then you also need some luck. Since, as we know, the goalkeeper is the last player and if he is not lucky, there are not many things he can do. This was apparent in Veria where I was lucky and as a result we conceded no goals."
- In one case, the ball deflected and you had to make a truly difficult save. Where does a goalkeeper owe his success to? Is it just training?
"Training is purely a matter of practicing. Through training and all these, you manage to deal with each case differently. And in that case in Veria, I tried to cope with it as best as I could."
- Do you consider this the best save in your career?
"I have definitely other saves as well, however this save seems more important given the award that goes with it. I believe it played an important part to it."
