Winning statement from our head coach Marina Maljkovic and our players

After the match where Fenerbahçe Safiport defeated ÇBK Mersin Yenişehir Municipality 90-55 in the first match of the final series of Herbalife Nutrition Women’s Basketball Super League, our Head Coach Marina Maljkovic and our players Olcay Çakır Turgut and Elizabeth Williams spoke to Fenerbahçe Television.

Expressing that they are focused on winning, Marina Maljkovic, Head Coach of our Fenerbahçe Safiport Women’s Basketball Team, said:Here, frankly, we do not attach much importance to the difference in numbers. We focus on victory. Because the team against us is an opponent that we respect very much. There are some very serious mistakes that we need to fix for the second game and we will work on them. I must also say that nothing is over yet, we got our first win, we have the second game ahead of us. A big thank you to the fans here.” said.

Olcay Çakır Turgut, who scored 8 points with Elizabeth Williams, who contributed 21 points to the victory, said the following about the victory:

Elizabeth Williams: Today we wanted to dominate the game with our defense. We wanted to set the score by putting pressure and doing it constantly, which I think we did well in the first game. Since our opponent lost the first match, they will start the second match harder. Therefore, we expect the magnificent contribution of our fans today in the second game, and we want to see them here.

Olcay Cakir Turgut: First of all, thank you to our fans. They did not leave us alone and today was very important to us. I always think that how we start will go. We started well. Of course, our opponent has injuries, but the important thing is to win. Now we have two more wins to get. We will do our best to win. We are waiting for our fans to play again.
