By Updated on Mar 25, 2010   6376 views   0 comments
As you can see my name I am Greek, I am a Panathinaikos fan since i was born so starting FM 2010 with patch 10.3 my first choice is Panathinaikos. Explaining my post I archive to win Champions League in second season of the game 2010/2011. Now I am playing the sixth season 2014/2015 and this is my only Champion League title. So now lets the game begin!!!

Same things about Panathinaikos A.O
Panathinaikos A.O is the most recognised Greek team in Europe Stadiums, is the only team in Greece who have played in Champions League Final in 1971 against Ajax and lost 2-0. In Greece ‘Trifylli’ is the nickname of the team, has won 19 championships, 16 cups and 3 super cups. Its stadium is O.A.K.A until 2012 then Trifylli moves to Panathinaikos Arena with a capacity of 45,000, but in real life Panathinaikos Arena will not be built in 2012 and no one knows when.

Meeting Team and Setting Team Expectations
President gave me only 5 millions euros so I started the tough goal to make Panathinaikos one of the best team in Europe, of course I set as an expectation to win the title in Greece.
In the first season I didn’t change any of the staff, I did only the recommended addition moves who assistant manager told me to do.
