Beşiktaş – Mersin Idman Yurdu pre-game interview

Updated: January 17, 2016

Beşiktaş head coach Şenol Güneş made these statements during the interviews before the Beşiktaş – Mersin Idman Yurdu game:

“The opponent and weather conditions will pressure us today”

“The league hasn’t been interrupted for a long time. The players needed to rest. After the resting period, we went into a period of preparation. We want to start well today, and end well. We know about Mersin’s situation. They will definitely come here with more belief. We want to play our own game and get a good result. The opponent and the weather conditions will pressure us today. We expect difficult times during the winter because of weather conditions like this and the pitch conditions.”

“Ismail wasn’t feeling comfortable”

Güneş also had something to say about Ismail Köybaşı, who was subbed off with an injury during the 1461 Trabzon cup game and who isn’t in the squad today: “Ismail wasn’t feeling comfortable When my player doesn’t feel comfortable, I respect that. Ismail is an important player for us. Today another player will replace him. That’s what being a team is about.”
