ATHENS – Greek-American businessman, lawyer, and Hellenic-American Chamber of Commerce (HACC) President Markos Drakotos was interviewed on ERT by journalist Aris Gatas regarding his interest in Panathinaikos football team. The interview airs on ERT on Saturday, May 22.

In particular, Drakotos, according to information in The National Herald, announced that the proposal to the current major shareholder of Panathinaikos, Giannis Alafouzos, has been formulated, analyzed his plan for the next day, while he also referred to his moves for the team in the recent past, which are not widely known.

It is recalled that last week, Drakotos, in an open letter which was published in TNH, called on the fans of Panathinaikos to support his and his business team’s effort, which includes taking the reins of Panathinaikos, with the aim of returning the historic team to the titles and glories of the past.

In any case, he and his associates have set as a condition the full access to examine the financial data of Panathinaikos, a request that, as they claim, has not been satisfied by the current ownership.
