Fenerbahçe Coach İsmail Kartal made a statement after the win against Adana Demirspor.


In the 31st week of the Super League, Fenerbahçe defeated its host Adana Demirspor 4-2.

Making a statement after the match, İsmail Kartal said, “We prepared for the match very well. We became a whole as a community. We played the best first 25-30 minutes of the season. We found very clear goal positions. While we wanted to finish ahead in the first half, the half ended 1-1 due to a simple mistake. We talked to the players “We took over the game. We told them that we had to win. We played good football, we fought well. We won in a different way. Let it be a gift to the wonderful Fenerbahçe fans,” he said.

İrfan Can Eğribayat explained the reason for his choice

The 62-year-old coach asked, “Why did you play İrfan Can Eğribayat instead of Livakovic?” “Who is in the first 11, who is on the bench, did you take a good look? You are asking me this question, but did you take a good look there? How many Turks were there on the bench? Two. There were Serdar Dursun and Çağlar Söyüncü. The others are young kids. If something were to happen to three Turkish players on the field, there is no Turkish player we could replace them with. We let İrfan play so that we could have peace of mind in case of injury or change. Mistakes can happen in football. He made up for his mistake. We played very well. Two balls hit the post. It was very different, too. “The match could have ended,” he replied.

“We wanted the Super Cup to be postponed”

İsmail Kartal gave the following answer to the question about the Super Cup:

Our president and managers came to Samandıra. What happened is obvious. We asked for the match to be postponed. They don’t do this and they pressure us. They dictated this history to us. We expressed our own thoughts in our meeting. Whatever decision the management makes, we are ready for anything.
