Brown Ideye is not content with the number of goals

Brown Ideye is not content with the number of goals that he has already scored in the Greece top flight.

He has suggested that he would look to just keep adding to his goals’ count till the season is running.

With the contributions of Ideye and some of the other players, Olympiacos is already on its way to the Greek top flight title.

They are placed ahead of the other teams in the standings by quite some margin.

The no. 2 team is behind them by 18 points which shows how dominant they have been in the season.

And not only in Greek top flight, the Red-Whites were actually coasting along in the group stages in the Champions League too and it seemed at one stage that they would pip the Gunners for the Knockouts, but, big losses in the last couple of games saw them finishing at 3 and that ended their quarter final hopes.

But, in the domestic League, there is just no stopping Olympiacos.

It’s not just the wins, but, the way they are beating the other teams is outrageous. They are going absolutely hammer and tongs.

They had been pretty good in the Greek top flight the previous season too and had claimed the title with ease but, they were not looking as invincible as they are looking this time around.

Vitor Pereira’s managerial transition to Olympiacos was a wise one

Vitor Pereira became the coach of Olympiacos in January of 2015 as he replaced Michel who was fired from the Greek club. Before taking the job in Greece, Pereira had been approached on a number of occasions with managerial positions in the Premier League.

“Olympiacos is announcing the end of its cooperation with manager Michel Gonzalez. The entire family of Olympiacos thanks Michel for his contribution to the club and wishes him every success in his career’’ This was the announcement that was made by the official website of Olympiacos as the Greek club announced the end of their relationship with the Spanish manager Michel Gonzalez.

There were a number of Premier League clubs that launched offers to Vitor Pereira as those English teams made an approach for the Portuguese manager. Everton and Crystal Palace were the squads that displayed most interested in luring Pereira but ultimately failed on doing so.

The owner of Crystal Palace, Steve Parish was the man who sacked Neil Warnock and attempted to turn Vitor Pereira into the new coach of the team and a number of negotiations as well as meetings were done in order to make it happen but Pereira had his eyes set somewhere else as he penned a two and half year long deal with Olympiacos and things have turned out well for him after having won the Greek Super League for the 5th consecutive year with a margin of over 10 points.
