Panathinaikos owner Dimitris Giannakopoulos talked about the upcoming EuroLeague Final Four (Belgrade 18 – 20 May) while also commenting on the playoff series against Real Madrid, where his team fell 3-1.
Here’s what Giannakopoulos said to Sport 24 Radio:
“Zalgiris Kaunas has made a good effort and can go all the way. Fenerbahce has the best coach in EuroLeague. CSKA Moscow has a huge budget and Dimitris Itoudis. Real Madrid is the winningest team in history.
I hope that an appealing Final Four will take place and that the best team will win. We ought to have won both games at OAKA and we didn’t. From that point, there were also some “off the court” issues. I believe that we deserved to be in the Final Four this year.”
