We don’t have many star players in this year’s team, but those who do are fighting very well. We have come a long way in 15 days. We will fight 5 foreigners. We will fight in the European Cup if we lose 2 matches in the pre-qualifications. With this budget. “We will be very successful. Our first 2 preparation matches gave the signals of this. We need to do 2-3 technical training. Tomorrow we will play a friendly match with Galatasaray. We will complete the technical work with him,” he said.

After that, the color will change. This is the league where the best teams compete. When we return, the fate of our club will be determined. We still have problems. We have financial difficulties. Problems with sponsorship are being resolved. But there seems to be a possibility that it will not be resolved. In that case, we may be on the verge of withdrawing from the European arena. We are not looking at it right now. We want to go to the Europa League qualifying matches and come back first. Let’s bring this city to the Europa League that it deserves, the rest will be the effort of our managers and the appreciation of those in higher positions. Our season can easily pass for 1 match bonus of the football team. Even in this case, we cannot find that money. But there are efforts and studies,” he said.
