The speech that will uplift Fenerbahçe!

While Fenerbahçe's consecutive injuries had already damaged their morale, the defeat against Trabzonspor in the Super League was another blow. İsmail Kartal took action to prevent this defeat from creating fragility on the team. Talking to his students, the experienced coach rolled up his sleeves to raise the team. 

Fenerbahçe entered the season with a historic start of 19 out of 19. Moreover, not only the victories but also the team's performance made the fans very happy. However, recent injury news, one after the other, had dampened their morale. Finally, the addition of Becao and Fred to the missing caravan left İsmail Kartal in a difficult situation. In this very period, the 3-2 defeat against Trabzonspor in Kadıköy was a heavy blow. İsmail Kartal rolled up his sleeves to prevent a repeat of the fragility caused by such defeats in the past years and made the speech that would lift his team.

Emre Mor is back

The national player had been injured in the first match of the season against Zimbru. Emre Mor returned to the field after 110 days, alongside the Trabzonspor match. The 26-year-old player entered the game in the 89th minute, replacing İrfan Can Kahveci. Although Emre Mor got to wear his jersey for a very short time, he couldn't experience the joy of it due to the 3-2 defeat. Emre won't be able to play in Thursday's Ludogorets match because he is not included in the UEFA squad list.

“Forget the defeat.”

The successful coach delivered a speech to his players. said, “No team finishes the season by winning all their matches. We were bound to stumble somewhere. It just didn't sit well with us that it happened in front of our fans. However, remember, we only lost one match. Don't let it affect us. Together, by working hard just like before, we will start a new winning streak. We'll learn from the Trabzonspor match, but we'll put that game behind us. Let's rise and look forward.”

“Let's enter the break with high spirits.”

Ismail Kartal emphasized the significance of two crucial upcoming matches before the international break. Fenerbahçe will visit Ludogorets on Thursday and face Adana Demirspor away in the league on Sunday. The experienced coach stated, “By defeating Ludogorets, we can largely secure the leadership in the Conference League. However, the Adana Demir match is much more important. Let's win both games and enter the international break in high spirits.”

What did the competitors do?

Three teams, Fenerbahçe's rivals in the Conference League Group H, played in their own leagues at the weekend. Recovering after the change of coach, Ludogorets defeated Krumovgrad 1-0 and became top of the Bulgarian League. In Denmark, Nordsjaelland defeated Vejle in front of their fans with Schjelderup's only goal. In Slovakia, Spartak Trnava managed to defeat the host Moravce with Elay's goal.
