Serious tensions took place at the meeting of the Greek basketball decision makers and the government on Friday at 22:30. The people of Olympiacos complained that the president of Panathinaikos Dimitris Giannakopoulos spit on Olympiacos Manager Giorgos Skinillias, who called an “old-fart” when he came out of the room.
Giannakopoulos was furious, he put up both with the people of the Piraeus team and with the Deputy Minister of Sports George Vassiliadis, resulting in the “break” of the conversation that had begun an hour before.
According to Panathinaikos’ environment, Dimitris Giannakopoulos was repulsed by George Aggelopoulos and was challenged by Sikhillias, so he was out of the question with them.
“It was clearly a provocation on me, an organized provocation, a challenge to threatening me who? The old-fart? That is what he wanted to do to provoke me and to react!! He wanted to create a “Show” To leave the overall issue from the responsibilities Olympiacos president’s decisions? The answer is simply that the Minister needs to respect his guests. “Here we are,” said Dimitris Giannakopoulos when he went out of the office..
