Coach Giannakis in scrutiny
Coach Giannakis is still feeling the after-shock after Olympiakos' defeat to Panathinaikos and the loss of the first title of the season to the opposition. The fans of Olympiakos are lashing out against the former coach of the National Team of Greece saying that he is not fit to coach one of the most expensive teams in Europe.
Greek website sportdog.gr published a number of opinions of fans of Olympiakos and Panathinaikos alike where, even the fans of Olympiakos sing praises to the talent of Dimitris Diamantidis who signle-handedly won the game for Panathinaikos and also say that coach Giannakis is making the same mistakes he made in the National Team. He can certainly feel the pressure now. There is another game coming up for the greek A1 league between the 2 teams that will determine who will win the regular season and hence the homecourt advantage for the playoffs.
