Francesco Guidolin has some Europa League concerns about visiting PAOK, but concedes “we really can’t complain about the draw.”
The Friulani risked facing sides like Manchester United and Manchester City, but were paired with PAOK Salonika.
“Going to play in Greece is always dangerous, because we know that we will be greeted by a very passionate, fiery and particularly difficult atmosphere,” said the Coach.
“However, having picked Arsenal in the Champions League preliminary round and placed in a Europa League group that felt like a Champions one, we really can’t complain about the draw.
“At least we avoided facing another of Europe’s biggest clubs. Are PAOK within our capabilities? I don’t know, I can only tell you that after we’ve played against them.”
