The MVP and Best Goal awards of the 22nd matchday were awarded to Sales Leozinho playing for Iraklis, who topped the competition organised by Super League, the Panhellenic Association of Professional Players (PSAP) and NOVA. The awards were presented by the members of the administration Mr Iordanis Strantzalis and Mr Mihalis Paleovrahas, among the sponsors of the club.
After the ceremony, the Iraklis player stated:
"I feel well and happy. I wish to thank God and my family for being here with me. I also wish to thank my teammates because I wouldn't be able to win these awards without them. I also thank the people that voted for me. I work daily to be strong. My goal, when coming to Iraklis, was to do my best for the team and to contribute. I did not expect to win the award. But it's a reward for all my efforts."
On the match of Iraklis against PAOK and Iraklis winning, he said: "I am happy for what we did, the fans I meet on the street also tell me that we did a good job. I knew that the team hadn't won PAOK for several years and I am happy for our victory.
On the upcoming match against AEK: "It's a difficult match. AEK have a very good squad. We must take one step at a time. The match against PAOK belongs in the past and we now have another difficult match against AEK that also have a strong squad and we must be focused in order to have a good display."
On the fact that he is left-footed whereas he scored the goal with his right, he said: "It all depends on the moment. I favour my left foot, however at the time I had to use my right foot and this is what I did."
On the campaign from now on and the goals set by Iraklis: "I said before that we must take one step at a time. We have a difficult schedule. After AEK, we play against Atromitos and Olympiacos."
On whom he dedicates these awards to: "I dedicate them to God, my family, my teammates and the fans."
