With Panathinaikos and the EuroLeague having called a truce, the “Greens” owner, Dimitris Giannakopoulos, made a statement to address the situation with the league.
Here is what the Greek businessman said: “During the last seasons, both Panathinaikos management and myself believe that, both on and off the court, we have not been treated with the well-deserved respect and in a fair manner. We trust that this will stop happening.
Due to the above, there have been reactions on our side that in no way depict the love and devotion we feel for basketball. For all these reactions, we would like to apologize to any member of the basketball society that may have felt offended.
Panathinaikos B.C. and the EuroLeague will carry on working together for the best of basketball and all its stakeholders.”
