What’s the best part about playing in Cyprus?

The good weather and that we are a football crazy nation.

And what do you believe is the big challenge about playing in Cyprus?

The big challenge about playing in Cyprus is the difference between the teams in terms of strength and abilities. The fact that there is only one division because of the low number of the teams existing, makes the league less competitive and short in duration. Therefore, it is easy to lose your interest and motivation to continue playing football.

Any advice for the next generation of Cypriot players?

Stay humble. Continue pursuing your dreams and never give up.
