John van‘t Schip has once again spoken out about the harsh state of Greek football. The national coach of the 2004 European champion saw the competition start in the country.
The Greek Super League had its first round of games last weekend. Van’t Schip is disappointed in clubs such as Panathinaikos, PAOK, AEK, Olympiakos and Aris Saloniki. ‘The five major clubs have added seven (!) in their basic lineups. Greek players lined up! ‘ , the national coach notes in a personal statement on his social media. “That‘s an average of 1.4 Greek player per team…”
After the last international period, in which he kept the World Cup odds alive with To Piratiko by winning the Swedes in Athens (2-1), the Dutch practice master also expressed negative about the state of Greek football and the role played by the clubs. Even now he comes up with a clear and hard conclusion. “Greek football clearly has an identity problem!”
Greek football clearly has an identity problem! The “big” 5 teams #Panathinaikos #PAOK #AEK #Olympiacos #ARIS put in there starting line ups of the first round in the Greek #superleague all together only 7!!! Greek players… an average of 1.4 player a team https://t.co/Y6tZq5krCC
