İsmail Kartal: “We secured a very important victory”

Fenerbahçe's coach İsmail Kartal, following the victory in the Başakşehir match, stated, "We secured a very important victory. Bonucci does not have a significant issue. I did not include him in the squad as a precautionary measure."

In his statement, İsmail Kartal said, “It’s a very important victory. Başakşehir was a team that played good football in the recent weeks. In the first half, when it was 11 vs. 11, we had 4-5 clear goal opportunities. We managed to have the ball in the penalty area 71 times. This is probably a record in Turkey. After the opponent went down to 10 men, they closed down a lot. We had difficulty breaking down the packed defense. We won 1-0, but we could have scored more goals normally. I am happy because we won in the end.”
