For the recruitment of Nikos Kostenoglou on the bench of the National Cyprus spoke the spokesman of the KOP, Konstantinos Siamboullis, (Super Sport fm 104.0) who was called to respond to the negative comments about the decision of the Federation, while commenting on the announcement of the Association Coaches, as they expressed their opposition to the fact that a Cypriot was not selected.
The relevant excerpts in detail:
Regarding the comments about the new coach of our National Team, Nikos Kostenoglou: “Everyone's views are accepted as well as the Coaches' Association and every point of view is respected and we have our own views. This position has its peculiarities, there is no guaranteed success for any national level of ours with any coach. An evaluation of names was made and it was decided that Kostenoglou is the right one, a connoisseur of Cypriot football with experiences mainly in AEK, he was also in the national team of Greece for a while and from what we learned he is very good at communicating with footballers and we speak the same language, very important . Let him work and then judge him, no one is doomed in advance to either succeed or fail. He is not afraid of challenges and does not hesitate to take on whatever happens, he has strong motivations and an appetite for work from our first contacts, he left the best impressions on the field, it will be seen not only the CV. We have seen strangers and less successful to succeed afterwards and vice versa “.
He then spoke about the announcement of the Coaches Association: “From the Coaches Association they expressed an opinion that is completely respected. Walem was not a Cypriot either. We are not going to enter into a process of controversy. We as KOP have our views. Engomitis will help a lot like Okkas and Minas and Charalambidis and Jovanovic at a younger age. We want all our federal technicians to succeed. “
