The MVP and Best Goal awards of the 19th matchday were awarded to Panagiotis Korbos playing for Panionios, who topped the competition organised by Super League Greece, the Panhellenic Association of Professional Players (PSAP) and NOVA.
After the ceremony, the Panionios player stated:
On the first awards he wins:
"This is the first time I win some kind of an award. I am definitely happy to be winning these awards because it means that the team also won and has a good campaign. So, I am doubly happy."
On the goal he scored:
"This is the most beautiful goal I have scored in my career. I believe it was the moment the goal was scored. As I also said after the match, the important thing is that my team won. If the team hadn't won, it would not be so important. When it is combined with a win, it's more important because the team is above everything."
On the MVP title:
"The fact that I was voted as MVP is an honour. For me, after all these years in football, it's not so important because I believe all players of the team are MVPs. Both the players on the pitch as well as those not on the pitch. It's an award that belongs to all my teammates."
On whom he dedicates his awards to:
"Whatever I do, all these years I have been in football, I dedicate everything to my father who has passed away. I also dedicate them to my family and the family of Panionios. First of all to my teammates, my "brothers", the coaching staff, the administration and the fans that support us and travel all these kilometres for us. I believe that as long as we stay like this, we have nothing to fear."
On the event with Masoud in the match against Veria:
"All was written is totally unfounded. If you watch all our matches, you will see that both I with other players as well as the rest in the team do this in order to create zeal. We don't do it because we fight. And we did not have a fight with Masoud… Masoud spoke calmly, he was booked, he kept protesting and the most important thing is what's best for the team. I happened to be calmer at the time. But we still did not have a fight. All the things that were reported do not reflect reality."
On the celebrations for Masoud in the team's coach bus:
"A video has circulated with us applauding Masoud. But people from the team and the administration and other players were applauded too. We are a family. What happens on the pitch, stays on the pitch. There is lots of stress in every match and a lot of tension too and at one point someone may say something, but we don't do this because we fight. We do this as part of the game. When the match is over, we are all together. We are a family."
On the crazy campaign of Panionios and the play-offs:
"It's a given in football that nothing is certain. There are still 10 matchdays left and that means there are still 30 points to win. We can very easily destroy and raze to the ground everything we have built with all this hard work. We don't think about the play-offs. We only think about our next match with Iraklis and nothing more."
On what he wants to say to the fans of Panionios:
"We thank them very much both for the match against Xanthi and the match against Veria for covering so many kilometres. I hope that in the match against Iraklis we will have even more fans than in the match against Xanthi. We ask them to honour us with their presence and we will do everything we can in order for them to feel proud again."
