Read what AEL coach Cedomir Janevski said after his team’s 2-0 loss to Apollon in the Lemme derby, where he also mentioned the incident with Amr Warda.
For the game: “Congratulations to Apollon for the victory. We wanted to win for our world, but we couldn’t. In the first opportunity created by the opponent, we conceded a goal. We tried to equalize, but it was not easy to find spaces. Apollon took advantage of the counterattacks with the speed of the players it has. It’s a shame we won’t be in the top six. We will go to all games to win. Let’s prepare for the cup. Our goal in the playoffs will be first place in the second group.”
About the episode with Ward: “Warda is one of the best players in the league. I went to shake his hand and he grabbed me. I shouldn’t have reacted like that either. I’m sorry, I shouldn’t have.”
