7 MATCHES IN 13 DAYS

Stating that they played 7 matches in 13 days in Europe and the league, Ufuk Sarıca said, “It was an important final match because the winner would take a break while the loser was going on. It was a difficult series for us as well.

We had our 7th game in 13 days, not to mention the 10-hour, 6-hour travels. We have achieved great success, but as a community, we could not digest it. Because we played a match as soon as it arrived. Therefore, there are psychological discomfort and distress in the players. We cannot take a break, we cannot rest. We play matches every day. They also did the best thing in those moments of decision. I congratulate them all. Once again, I want to remind our community, we had a semi-final in Europe last year, this year we made a final. We continue putting it on top. I congratulate the whole team for this, “he said.
