Football players in Greece remain unaffected by the crisis. Such are at least the conclusions of the forward of Panathinaikos, Djibril Cisse, who revealed before the French newspaper France Soir his conclusions about Greece, about the crisis, about the world of football and... about the temptations which in his words in the Mediterranean countries are lurking around almost every corner.

Greek sports website www.sport.gr informs that before the French the media player completely relaxes and says: "Crisis is it? The crisis has not affected us, the players nor has it affected the teams. Of course, as you walk the streets one can see that the ordinary people are affected by the crisis. But things are not as bad as one can hear. Football has been affected less, because the presidents are rich and have not had direct problems so far." The forward does not hid from the media also his satisfaction with football in Greece: "I really enjoy playing football in Greece. During each game I play in front of 40,000 entranced fans. The Greeks are all about football and basketball. A lot people now have trouble finding work and they find a shelter in football. I am like them. A bawler, who is never satisfied. I became a song in the mouths of the fans of Panathinaikos and decided to stay in the team in spite of the offers that I had. This seems to have inflamed their hearts to me" - says Cisse.
 

Interesting are also the analyzes of the player, known for his fierce and explosive character, about the Mediterranean country: Greece looks both like heaven and hell! The working conditions and salaries are good. However, there are dangers. Circumstances are such that they can easily make you forget your main priority, which is to play football. It is now October and the temperature is 25 degrees. Everywhere is full of very nice bars, cafes and places where you can have fun. One has to be very careful to stay concentrated. If you're not strong it is dangerous."

Hardly any other foreign player has ever spoken so sincerely about the "dangers" that lie in Greece and its capital, which is known for the fact that it never sleeps. Coming from the mouth of Cisse these comments sound authentic. Besides for his goals, the player is also known that he tries hard to "avoid" the kindness. Instead, he prefers to "serve" the truth on the table, however shocking it is. The famous party man, loving also to draw attention with his clothing, hairstyles and provocative statements, so far manages to balance between the pitch and the nightlife. "I didn’t come here for a walk. I am a fighter. I hate losing, I love being loved", he says proudly.

While fiery Cisse has found a way to deal with the temptations of Athens, this is not how things are for his fellow countryman, Sidney Govou. Cisse alone helped Govou to become part of the team of the greens, but shortly after his arrival in Athens, the new acquisition got deeply entangled in the invisible net of the party ... The parties of Sydney through the clubs around the sea, late after curfew became a nightmare for the management and coach of the team. At present, his presence in the ranks of the team the supporter of the sweet life owes only to his written apology to the President Nicolas Pateras. As well as to the assurance that henceforth he will put an end to the fun...
