‘We will need to score in the second leg’


We caught up with Sokratis shortly after our 3-1 win over Valencia in the Europa League semi-final first leg.

Here’s what the Greece defender said:

on the result…
I think we gave a good response to the last three games, which were not good. Today I think we played well. We scored three goals and we had the chances to score more. Now, we’re looking forward to the next game on Sunday, which is very important for us, and also next week.

on the team’s character…
It’s very important because this gave us big confidence. It’s not easy against a very good team like Valencia, who have very good players. It was a difficult game.

on the key to the second leg…
We have to go there and score a goal. And we have to show the same character as today.
