İsmail Kartal’s press conference before Fenerbahçe – Spartak Trnava match

Fenerbahçe coach İsmail Kartal and star player İrfan Can Kahveci held a press conference before the Spartak Trnava match.

Fenerbahçe will face Spartak Trnava in a group match in the UEFA Conference League tomorrow. Ahead of the match, where Fenerbahçe will go in with the absolute goal of victory, Fenerbahçe coach İsmail Kartal and player İrfan Can Kahveci held a press conference.

İsmail Kartal’s statements are as follows:

“Our sole aim is to get 3 points and advance from the group. I believe we can achieve this. We have a strong hand. We want to do what befits us and, at worst, come out as the second. After the heavy defeat we suffered in the Nord match, we quickly recovered. We plan to continue our journey in the best possible way. Tonight, I will have discussions about the situations of 1-2 players. When we win, we are already guaranteed to advance. Goal difference is crucial for leadership. We discuss this with our players as well.

Serdar Aziz’s return

“Serdar Aziz has not played football for 6 weeks; he needs to catch up with the team rhythm. We will evaluate.”

“Playing away when we should play at home”

Regarding the fixture after the postponement of the matches, Kartal said, “I extend my best wishes to the entire refereeing community for the incident that happened on Monday night. The decision is TFF’s decision, and it is not right for me to make any comments at the moment. We have no power to change this decision. We will play away when we should play at home. There have been such negativities, but I will not speak about them; if the club deems it necessary, they will make a statement.”

Rodrigo Becao’s return date

“When we win, we advance from the group. With the return of injured players to the team, along with their energies, Zajc and Becao still have injuries. Only they remain. Tomorrow, hopefully, we want to continue our path with a beautiful victory. I think Becao will start training with the team around the middle of January.”
