İsmail Kartal: "This is a long marathon. The Super Cup match will only happen once. Of course, Fred's presence will be important for us."

Fenerbahçe coach İsmail Kartal, following the draw with Galatasaray, stated, “If you can't win these types of matches, then you shouldn't lose them. After all, we are the leaders.”

The battle between Fenerbahçe and Galatasaray in the 18th week of the Trendyol Super Lig ended in a 0-0 draw.

Fenerbahçe coach İsmail Kartal made statements after the match.

After the game, İsmail Kartal said, “We fought to win at our own home. That was our plan. In the first half, we planned to turn the match in our favor with an early goal. In the second half, we wanted to add dynamism by bringing in İsmail. We played closer to the opponent and pressed more in the second half. We had a few positions that could have resulted in goals. Both teams fought well today. If you can't win these types of matches, then you shouldn't lose them. After all, we are the leaders.”

İsmail Kartal's response to Okan Buruk's penalty comments

In addition, İsmail Kartal responded to Okan Buruk's penalty remarks. İsmail Kartal stated, “Sacha Boey should have been sent off too.”

İsmail Kartal's words were as follows:

“The opposing team's coach is saying, ‘Our penalty wasn't given,' but if you look at it, Boey should have been sent off too. Referees need to let the game play a bit more, but Galatasaray players constantly throwing themselves on the ground reduced the time the ball stayed in play.”
