Beşiktaş – Alanyaspor post-match reactions

Updated: August 21, 2016

“This is a good start”

Şenol Güneş: “Our opponent is a new team and they need more time. We played serious as a team and our game plan was effective. We needed to play with less loss of possesion, but this is normal at the start of the season. I want to thank my players and the fans. This is a good start. It is nice to grab 3 points.”

“We played like champions”

Olcay Şahan: “We started well and played like champions from the first minute of the game. We conceded an unnecessary goal in the last minute. We want to come back from Konya with 3 points before the national break. We lost 1-2 important players, but this team has been playing together for years and we prove this with our football. Our success comes from being together for years. I hope we can make our fans happy this season with our new additions.”

“I’m trying to keep myself mentally ready”

Cenk Tosun: “We didn’t enjoy the victory because of the bombing in Gaziantep. We wanted to start with pressure and that’s what we did. We could have scored more goals in the first half. Oguzhan scored an amazing goal. We gave away some chances in the second half, but other than that we were in control of the game. We are happy that we started with 3 points. We deserved the cup in the game against Galatasaray but we couldn’t get it. I’m trying to keep myself mentally ready by training well.”
