Fenerbahçe hosted Ludogorets in the UEFA Conference League Group H 3rd week match. The Canaries won the match with a score of 3-1 and extended their winning streak to 18 matches. Canaries' success was echoed in the Spanish press.
FENERBAHCE ON THE AGENDA IN SPAIN
Spanish newspaper AS, while talking about Fenerbahce's winning streak, made a reference to Arda Guler who left Fenerbahce.
‘ARDA'S ABSENCE WAS NOT FELT'
“Fenerbahçe's incredible streak since Arda Güler's departure” reads the headline, stating that Fenerbahce lost Arda Güler to Real Madrid at the beginning of the season but the Yellow Canaries were not affected:
“Fenerbahçe lost rising star Arda Güler to Real Madrid at the start of the season. The 18-year-old was the future of the club, but his departure also left €20 million in the coffers. The truth is that the loss went unnoticed and the Turkish team has made an excellent start to the season: They have won all 18 games they have played this season.”
‘DZEKO MADE THE DIFFERENCE'
In the article, Fenerbahce's transfers are also mentioned and it is underlined that the Yellow-Navies have built a strong squad with the revenues from player sales:
“As for the squad, a strong team was built with the profits from sales, including Arda Guler's. Cengiz Ünder (signed for 15 million from Marseille), Szymanski (almost 10 to Dynamo Moscow) and Brazilian Fred (another 10 to Manchester United) were the main transfers, but they also acquired a lot of quality at zero cost. The addition of Edin Dzeko, who arrived for free from Inter, has had a huge impact on the Istanbul team's offense, reaching numbers that have made the difference: 9 goals and 7 assists in 13 games.”
