Statement from Fenerbahçe’s İsmail Kartal about number 6: It’s not the end of the world!

Fenerbahçe defeated Antalyaspor 3-2 at home in the 5th week of Trendyol Super League.

Yellow-dark blue team coach İsmail Kartal made a statement after the match.


We didn’t start the match very well. After Cengiz was injured at the beginning of the match, we gave positions while he was missing. Our players were demoralized there. The second half was as we wanted. We played better and took positions. We had complete control of the game and we managed to win the match.

We made very good moves to positions other than number 6. Some of the players we interviewed for that position did not leave their clubs, and some players did not want to come themselves. We didn’t want to make a transfer just for the sake of it.
