Mazán and Chanti to Be Tested by Panathinaikos Athens

The cooperation of AS Trenčín with European clubs intensifies.

The presence of the owners from the Netherlands in AS Trenčín has brought intensification of our cooperation with the clubs from quality European leagues. Besides the owners, the last home league games have been watched by an observer from FC Chelsea as well as by one of the top managers of FC Utrecht. Also the link Trenčín – Athens is still more intensive.

The players of AS Trenčín Peter Mazán and Angelos Chanti left for Athens on Wednesday. Their short-term stay in the team of the famous Greek football club is another step in the cooperation of Trenčín with leading European clubs. “Tschen La Ling is very active in building of relationships with other teams. He is in a very close contact with the representatives of Den Haag and Ajax. He also has excellent contacts in another club he played in – Panathinaikos,“ the general manager Róbert Rybníček disclosed about diplomatic relations of the club’s owner.

The very first step of the cooperation of Trenčín with the team of ‘the green trefoil’ was the arrival of Alex Pagkalis. The testing stay of the duo from Trenčín in the Peloponnese Peninsula is another one. “It is very important for us that the young players experience the atmosphere of the top clubs. They have an excellent opportunity to show their qualities. At the same time, it can be a strong motivational factor for them. Once they ‘taste’ the atmosphere of such clubs, their will to succeed may rise substantially,“ the general manager said.

Both players welcomed the offered opportunity. Especially the Greek could not hide his impatience. “Panathinaikos is the most famous club in the country. It has always been my dream to play in their jersey,“ the technical southpaw whose dream almost came true already a time before said. “It was a long time ago. I was in negotiations with the club. They were going well, but unfortunately my transfer was not possible. I was too young and my parents did not have the chance to move to Athens. In spite of that, I stayed their faithful fan. I have studied each man from the team in details. I know everything about them. I am very thankful to Mr. Ling for this great opportunity,” Chanti emphasized.

Also Peter Mazán showed a solid orientation in the Greek club. “Their team is fantastic. Dimitrios Salpigidis, Gilberto Silva, or Georgios Karagounis are top players,“ the member of the junior team of AS listed his favorites. He has had minimum international experiences yet. He is however not afraid of the Athens challenge. “I want to show my qualities. I will do my best. I hope they will like me. I know that it is very important to break the language barrier. I am having my English Matura this year. I understand almost everything. My speaking is a bit worse though,“ the talented offensive player admitted.

The duo from Trenčín is going to stay in the South European capital until Sunday. Similar opportunities in clubs of the Dutch, French and other interesting European leagues are waiting for other young players of AS Trenčín in the upcoming period.
