Gençlerbirliği – Beşiktaş post match reactions

Updated: September 21, 2015

Şenol Güneş: “We knew what our opponent was going to do, keep it tight at their own half and come out of it quickly with their counter attacks. Our passing was a bit off today and we didn’t even have a single shot in the first half. On top of that we conceded a goal because of a lack of concentration. We did however play a good second half in which we created chances to win the game. However, we are a team that have to create a lot more chances during a game and has to become better. We are very disappointed that we lost 2 points. Our fans’ support was great today, they deserved the win.”

The head coach of the Black Eagles had this to say about the upcoming derby against Fenerbahçe: “A derby or not, the important thing for us is always the win. We weren’t on our level today. We want to play our game and win against Fenerbahçe with our own strength.”

Andreas Beck: “It was a hard game, especially after falling behind in the first half. In the second half we found our goal. It was important to grab 3 points here, but if you are playing an away game against a tough opponent and you can’t seem to win no matter what you try, it’s still very important not to lose the game. We were a bit tired but still managed to put a lot of pressure on our opponent. We are leaving a tough week behind us. We now have to rest well, because we have an important match this upcoming week. We expect the support of our fans during the Fenerbahçe game.”

Olcay Şahan: “We didn’t start the game well and then we conceded a goal. We didn’t even create a single chance in the first half. However, we played a good second half, mainly because our substitutes did their job. I think we deserved 3 points today. Gökhan played a great game. We now want to forget this game and concentrate on our next game against Fenerbahçe. I hope a lot of fans will attend this game, we need them.”
