Beşiktaş – Napoli post-match reactions

Updated: November 2, 2016

Şenol Güneş: “Everyone’s chance in the group continues. If we would have won, it would have been a big advantage. Afterwe scored we conceded a goal in an unexpected way, which makes us sad. The support of our fans was amazing. This game forced us to play with another game plan than usual and our fans respected this. Before the game I told our players to be happy and proud today. We aren’t very happy but I am nonetheless proud. It is an interesting group. We got 4 points from Napoli and our head to head position is now an advantage. We are now going to focus on the game against Benfica.”

Ricardo Quaresma: “Napoli are a difficult side and it was a difficult game. We closed the midfield well but conceded a goal we didn’t want to concede. They have a lot of quality players. Getting a point gives us hope for our next games. We lost some big players, but we are trying to not let their absence be noticed.”

Oğuzhan Özyakup: “We knew the strength of our opponent. Conceding that goal after taking the lead disappointed us. If we would have carried that lead we might have found a second goal. We still have two games and everyone still has a chance. I just came out of an injury and am trying to get my form back.”

Luis Rhodolfo: “It was a difficult game. Our opponent has a lot of quality. We conceded a goal we didn’t want to concede. We played well but a good playing side doesn’t always win. The game ended in a draw, there’s nothing we can do about that.”
