We will come out of this process together, taking into account the recommendations of the boards.” he said.
“I meet with sponsors at least 10 hours a day”
Underlining that Trabzonspor has the potential to create the resources to overcome the economic difficulties it is experiencing, Doğan said:
“No one should worry. We will overcome this debt, which has been announced and has an urgency. We have income-generating works for Trabzonspor. While we solve these problems, we will not compromise on sportive success on the other. The first thing Ertuğrul Doğan will do at the moment is to solve financial issues. I meet with sponsors for at least 10 hours. We receive positive responses from sponsors and I believe we will continue to receive them. Trabzonspor does not fit in anyone’s pocket. This is not something that I or anyone else can handle alone. Most of the money that needed to be paid urgently in the first place was found. Support from the board of directors will be taken.”
Stating that they have been in Trabzonspor for years and that the specific problems of the burgundy-blue club are clear, Doğan said, “We are coming to solve the problems permanently. If we are successful, we will continue, and we will believe that. If we are not, we will pave the way for the club. “After achieving these, we want Trabzonspor to become champions again. Otherwise, success will be temporary success. This city, fans, and community deserve to experience the same things and happiness.” used the phrases.

The subject of the coach will be clarified after the congress
Ertuğrul Doğan said that Abdullah Avcı, who left his position as coach, will return to the burgundy-blue team again, saying, “Neither Abdullah Avcı has such an idea, demand, nor does the management have such an idea. Currently, he continues with Orhan Ak until the general assembly. “The board of directors has not been elected yet. After the congress, the board of directors will decide who the new coach will be in a short time. We will listen to the opinions of all friends about the coach, we will discuss it among ourselves. We will make the right decision for Trabzonspor.” gave the answer.
Emphasizing that Trabzon has football in its genes and that the productivity of the infrastructure has gained greater importance in the current situation, Doğan concluded his words as follows:
“We have worked with the Double Pass company on the infrastructure. We made an agreement with the world’s largest company in this field during the Abdullah Avcı period. The importance of infrastructure is not only valid for Trabzonspor, but for the whole of Turkish football. It is getting more difficult to manage a club with these costs. Points almost do not cover the costs of away travel. We are re-planning the infrastructure. This project will become clear at the end of 2023. We will have demonstrated this work with all its organizations. We are in pursuit of permanent solutions. Of course, we will provide the necessary, correct communication with the public and our fans, but we will do business rather than talking. He needs a lot.”
