"We suffered a collapses in the second half and this defeat is the result. Zalgiris controlled the tempo of the game, while Olympiacos played a different game in each half. We committed 22 turnovers, which are too much and cost us a lot. There is no doubt, that we have a tough and difficult road to run, but I hope that we can do it. After last season’s triumph, Olynmpiacos is considered to be a favorite, not an underdog. But this is not true, we are not favorites. To manage a success is more difficult than to manage a failure. I don’t blame the players, the responsibility belongs to me."
