The Best Goal award of the 10th matchday was awarded to Patito Rodriguez playing for AEK, who topped the competition organised by Super League Greece, the Panhellenic Association of Professional Players (PSAP) and NOVA. The award was presented by Mr Spyros Papadatos.
After the ceremony, the AEK player stated the following:
"I remember changing the ball firstly with Dídac and then with Christodoulopoulos who returned the ball to me. I wanted to score a one-touch goal. I saw the gap and sent the ball to the right spot. It was indeed a very beautiful goal. My wish is to help my team and my teammates. This is why I hope to win as many awards as possible so as to help the team."
As regards the suspension of the championship, he said:
"The truth is that all players find this situation awkward. The normal thing is to know from the start of the season all match dates. I personally cannot express an opinion. Maybe players that have been in Greece longer can say what they believe. Maybe this is a normal situation. I find the whole thing odd because I have never experienced something similar before."
Patito Rodriguez also talked about how much the players are affected by the suspension:
"It's perfectly natural that this suspension affects our lives because we are professional players. Let me give you an example. If someone knows that he will be sitting an exam at the end of the week and he is suddenly told that there will be no exam, he studies and prepares differently. This is what happened to us. When we know that we are playing a match over the weekend, we prepare for the match; we then find out that there will be no match so we are, of course, affected."
The award was presented by Mr Spyros Papadatos (Regional Marketing Manager of Dell EMC).
"Dell EMC is sponsoring AEK for the second year because we share the same fair play values. Of course a fact such as the best goal of the matchday, which was scored by a super talented player such as Patito, is one of the reasons behind this enthusiasm, we therefore wanted to show our support. I am not an expert to talk about Patito. Many others have said great things about him. We are mere fans who sit back and enjoy his actions and his future achievements; I believe that he has many things to offer."
