In Round 23, they lost against Fakel by a 3-2 (14-25, 25-20, 25-23, 18-25, 15-9).

GRE M: Filippov fails to cope with lack of discipline of Cuban duo, resigns as PAOK head coach

Hola soy el ex jugador de Paok, solo quiero aclarar la falta de respeto de esta página al publicar tal dicha mentira, sin saber la realidad del problema, como mismo ha dicho el entrenador en su entrevista nosotros llegamos al equipo sin su consentimiento por lo que desde un principio fuimos mal mirados por el asi de gratis, hasta el punto de llegar a empezar hacer gestos 'racista' como por ejemplo en los castigos de los juegos los demás jugadores llevaban chocolate como castigo y los dos 'negros cubanos' teníamos que llevar bananas... En las llegadas tardes el nos decía una hora falsa la cual a la hora de llegar ya el entrenamiento había comenzado, entre muchas cosas mas que solo nosotros sabemos.. Asi que por favor a la hora de hablar, hablen con base y no con mentiras que eso nos afecta como jugadores, entiendo que lo hacen por dinero y todo eso pero por una falsa organizada como en la que nos vimos nosotros, podemos perder nuestra carrera.. Muchas gracias... Reply
