said, “We prepared well for the match. We went ahead 1-0, 2-0. After 2-0, we could have comfortably found the third and fourth goals and completed the match here, taking the 3 points.”

“We shouldn't concede such simple goals.”

Kartal added, “At the end of the first half, a long ball behind the defense caused a disagreement. ‘Leave it to me, I'll leave it to you,' and we conceded a goal, making it 2-1. We started the second half well again, making it 3-1. After 3-1, we conceded goals again due to simple mistakes we made. We shouldn't concede such simple goals. After 3-1, we could have finished the match more comfortably.”

The victory is good, but we shouldn't concede goals so easily; after all, we are a team playing for the championship. Today, we got the 3 points as planned, but it came with damage.”

“How the red cards happened, why they happened, I haven't discussed with the players.”

Finally, Kartal stated, “We saw the red cards. At the moment, I haven't discussed in detail with the players how these red cards happened and why they happened. We will talk with them, and we will have our own evaluation. Tonight, we are going to Istanbul. We have training tomorrow morning. We will prepare for the derby until the weekend in the best possible way.”
