Forget Greek woes says Brewster
Former Arab Craig Brewster has told Dundee United to ignore their Europa League opponents AEK Athens' current and well-publicised difficulties.
The Greeks have experienced serious unrest amongst their supporters that led to the recent abandonment of one of their games, whilst also suffering from cash problems which saw Swedish defender Daniel Majstorovic quitting them and joining Celtic after his employers struggled to meet his wages
"What is happening to AEK is a wider problem because it's happening to a lot of clubs across the world and this kind of thing is not uncommon in Greece," Ross County assistant manager Brewster told the Press & Journal. "Greece is a poor country with a few rich people and if some of them put money into a club they can become very strong.
"AEK don't have someone doing that right now but the Greek league is strong and they'll be tough opponents for United," added Brewster, who himself had a previous spell in Greece with Ionikos.
"They are a club with a great European tradition and their team is packed with experience, so they'll know exactly what to expect on Thursday."
