made statements at 's High Council Meeting. 's statements are as follows:

“THE HIGHEST POINT IN OUR CLUB'S HISTORY”

“Until last night, we were the leaders. With one match less, we are in second place. We are progressing confidently on our path. As of the 23rd week, we have reached the highest point in the history of our club with 60 points. Tonight, we have a challenging match. Hopefully, luck will be on our side, and we will return with 3 points.”

“WE GOT KRUNIC FOR LESS THAN 3 MILLION EUROS”

“We acted quickly in transfers and made a better squad engineering. We brought in Krunic and . Krunic could have been much more expensive in the summer, but now we got him for less than 3 million euros.”

“BONUCCI WANTS TO WIN THE CHAMPIONSHIP IN HIS LAST SEASON”

“We brought in Leonardo Bonucci because of his leadership character and his desire to play for the championship in his last season. It is said that the defense line is crowded, but we played the FC Nordsjaelland match without defenders.”

“ÇAĞLAR SÖYÜNCÜ GAVE UP THE MONEY FROM ATLETICO MADRID FOR THE TRANSFER”

“There was an unbridgeable gap in Çağlar Söyüncü's transfer with his club. We withdrew from the table. Çağlar made a great sacrifice to play for for only 4 months and waived a significant portion of the signing fee in his agreement with Atletico Madrid. I haven't asked him how much this amount is, but he gave up a fee in the millions of euros. I especially want to thank him. I also want to thank Selahattin Baki, who practically set up a camp in Madrid for this transfer.”

“MELISSA VARGAS IS COMING BACK”

“I announce that, with the efforts of the Volleyball Federation and our administrators, and with a little push from Vargas' management company, Melisa Vargas will return to the . License procedures have been completed. She is still injured and has just started playing. Hopefully, she will contribute to us in March and April. This transfer has a cost, and I thank our supporting sponsors.”

“DOUBLE STANDARDS SHOULD BE ELIMINATED IN REFEREE DECISIONS”

“I want to talk about the Federation (TFF) a bit… In our country, where so many extraordinary events have happened in such a short time, football continues as if nothing has happened. The decisions and performances of TFF's committees and referees are influencing our fate at an unprecedented level compared to the major leagues in Europe. Our only wish is for a fair administration and the elimination of double standards in referee decisions.”

“NEGATIVE COMMENTS SPREAD BY 40 TROLL ACCOUNTS”

“We did not play in the match in Saudi Arabia by mutual decision. There were organized and planned attacks on me in social media and traditional media regarding this matter. If I were Club, I would say, ‘Why did you forget about me? I was also one of the factors in making the decision.' The truth is everyone knows which interests and purposes troll accounts serve. 59% of the negative comments in the shares were spread by 40 troll accounts. Do these have a common point with the values that Fenerbahçe is tightly connected to? First, perceptions are planted on social media, then they are cooked in traditional media. As your , what I will remember in the 6 seasons we have experienced is not the words and attacks of our enemies but the silence of those we considered friends.”

“A COMMUNITY WITHOUT HYPOCRISY, SHAME, OR FEAR REFLEX”

“I also have a couple of words for our rival. Our rival has extraordinary abilities in creating perception. If 1 out of 10 positions is wrongly called against them, they create a huge uproar. Similarly, if 9 out of 10 positions are against us, and 1 is in our favor, they still stir up and inflame everything.”

“THEY CALL FOR CALM WHEN THINGS ARE GOING WELL…”

“They do not adhere to any ethical situation when making transfers. No one can say that we seduced their transfer or player. They first seduce the player and then corner the player's club. They call for calm when things are going well; they stir up and inflame things when things are going bad.”

“THERE WILL BE A NEW PRESIDENT IN JUNE”

“God willing, there will be a new president and executive board in June. Believe me, this decision is for the good of Fenerbahçe. There is a misunderstanding about Sadettin Saran. There is a saying, ‘Why did you collect signatures while going for the championship.' Mr. Saran said that I need to continue for one more term and that he does not want to be a candidate in this matter, and it is correct for me to continue. I told him that I do not consider continuing, and he should be a candidate. He keeps telling me that if he becomes a candidate, I won't be. We told him that he needs to collect signatures so that we can share information with him.”
