Başakşehir – Beşiktaş post-match reactions

Updated: April 30, 2017

“I apologize to our fans”

Şenol Güneş: “We’ve lost before and lost again today. The important thing is to play well, but we couldn’t adjust to the opponent’s playing style. We conceded a goal after every attack of Basaksehir, which means we couldn’t prepare the team well. That is my mistake. We were bad in the first period of the game and after falling behind we panicked. We couldn’t put pressure on the opponent and didn’t use the ball well. We couldn’t answer the opponent’s pressure. I apologize to our fans for the way we played. We lost the game, but we aren’t giving up. We don’t care about the points difference, we want to win our remaining games. We now want to win the game against Fenerbahçe.”

“Everything is in our own hands”

Oğuzhan Özyakup: “We knew it was going to be a difficult game. It’s a strong team at home and they’ve beaten Galatasaray with a big margin before. The first 18 minutes summarize the game. We didn’t play our own game. We started slowly and couldn’t pass well. After that we did the best we could, but couldn’t convert our chances. Things don’t always go the way you want them to go. We now want to rest well, work hard and prepare for the derby. Everything is in our own hands.”
