Statement of Dimitris Giannakopoulos:
"Last summer a long-time friendship was transformed into professional co-operation.
The decision that we took with Giannis Bourousis, however difficult it seemed to some people, was to justify both of us from the final result, for which we were sure from the beginning!
The contribution of Giannis to the up was huge. I personally thank him for what he offered to the team and I wish him every success from my heart, as he has much to give in basketball. "
Statement of Giannis Bourousis:
"The decision of Dimitris Giannakopoulos to bring me to Panathinaikos and the confidence he showed me throughout the year, was a great honor for me. I believe that with the conquest of two trophies, I have also justified him for his choice and for his support.
When we agreed last year, I promised to him that I would do everything to come with Panathinaikos back to the top. Having made my promise, I feel the need to look for new challenges in my career.
I would like to thank the family of Giannakopoulos and personally Dimitris for the honor he made me, as of course the whole team for what we experienced in a difficult year.
I would also like to thank the fans of Panathinaikos for his applause and at the same time ask him to continue to support the team that has offered him so many joys ".
