There have been some conflicts between the players of the Greek national team during the last days. In the most recent one, the protagonists were Giannis Bourousis and Nikos Pappas. The two players of Kostas Missas exchanged words and were involved in a serious incident that took place in the dining room of the Caravel Hotel, where the national team resides.

Two teammates in Olympiacos also had a bad moment between them. Kostas Papanikolaou and Dimitris Agravanis quarreled intensely following the prep game against Serbia that took place in Belgrade.

After today’s game with Italy, Pappas joked when he was asked about what happened: “With Bourousis we fight throughout the season like it happened again three days ago, and then we go for dinner together”. It remains to be seen if the whole tension now belongs to the past.
