“The response of Minister Kontonis to the statement of FC Panathinaikos confirms blatantly his anger against our Club.
Of course he does not mention anything about the “nub of the issue”. No answer to our specific points, but just some vague political talks and distortion of our statement on the supposed closing of “Gate 13”.
…and something else, as well: Panathinaikos neither feared nor will be afraid of someone. Our administration and our fans become angry only when they find feckless observers instead of allies, in their unequal battle against corruption in Greek football, which generates violence and when they go against the few elements that have nothing to do with football, but serve other purposes. “.
