Our coach İsmail Kartal assessed the victory of Gaziantep FK

Our coach, İsmail Kartal, gave a statement to the broadcaster after the 3-2 win against Gaziantep FK.

First, Ismail Kartal congratulated the Muslim world on Eid al-Fitr and thanked our supporters for their support: “I always say, if they exist, we exist. We do our best to make them happy, we try to do that. The more these stands are filled, the more my players are motivated. They feel the love and support from the fans. This enthusiasm increases the struggle. They share this feedback with me during our meetings with the players. It’s great to play football in front of these fans, we really appreciate that. When we integrate with our fans, we try to do our best not to embarrass them. The Gaziantep team has a good staff, a good team. We could have won otherwise. After all, we knew how to win tonight. Since the day I took office, we had 11 wins, 3 draws and 1 loss in 15 games, if I’m not mistaken. It’s a good series. Thank you to our amazing players and fans. Our fans started filling the stands at every game, showing that they trusted us. We all appreciate it. I dedicate this win especially to our fans. ” mentioned.

Regarding the exit they took, İsmail Kartal said, “I don’t want to go into too much detail. I don’t want to exaggerate either. I just did my job. I am a person who knows the internal dynamics of Fenerbahçe very well. I am a coach who knows where and what needs to be hit. The first day I arrived, I said I would play positive football. I am a person who knows very well what Fenerbahçe and the fans want. After all, I am a soldier who comes from the stands, who is a fan, who lives in this city, who comes from Fenerbahçe. We did that. We worked very well with our players, respecting each other. This process was not easy. We have moved from one system to another. It took us 1-1.5 months. In this process, we had cripples, illnesses, many problems. We played a match in 3 days, walking on 3 lanes. This has not been easy. But in the end, we got the game I wanted. My players have started enjoying this game. They like to practice. The fluidity, the order, the rhythm of the training sessions… They also appreciated. That is why we are here today. The biggest part belongs to my players,” he said.

Regarding the support of our fans, he said, “I owe them a debt of gratitude for the love and trust that our fans have shown me. I am a child of this community. I came without blinking an eye during I was on duty. I had to come. I needed to fix something, I was aware of that. I think we’ve worked things out so far. Thank God he showed us today. In this stadium, a unity has been achieved with our football team and our stands full of our fans in Kadıköy.There is an atmosphere again.The spirit of Kadıköy is back.
