As Official Partner of the Olympiacos tour of Australia, South Melbourne FC hosted the Greek Champions at Lakeside Stadium, where it held its first training session on Australian soil.
The Olympiacos coaching staff ran the players through their paces and provided the opportunity for the playing squad to acclimatise to the local conditions. Bathed in bright sunshine, Lakeside Stadium provided the ideal training facility for the Greek Champions as they prepared for their exhibition match on Saturday. Many fans were in attendance who were lucky enough to secure an autograph and photo with their favourite player.
At the conclusion of the scheduled training session, Olympiacos Head Coach Ernesto Valverde held a press conference with all local media.
SMFC TV was in attendance at Lakeside Stadium, and recorded all the action. Watch out for exclusive interviews with two Olympiacos stars on next week’s SMFC TV.
