Ali Koç Criticizes System, Outlines Future Plans for Fenerbahçe

Fenerbahçe President Ali Koç addressed club members in Ankara, providing insights into the transfer strategy for the upcoming season.

Koç made several statements regarding current issues. He mentioned the inability to overcome the system and discussed plans for the next season's strategy.

Ali Koç's statements are as follows:

“I can assure you that if another candidate wins, we will do everything we can to unite the community.

We had an extraordinary season. Anyone who says ‘Fenerbahçe had a bad season' is not well-intentioned.

“IF WE SCORED 102 POINTS, THEY WOULD HAVE GIVEN THE OPPONENT 103 POINTS”

We didn't become champions. Even if we had scored 102 points, they would have given our opponent 103 points. We beat everyone, but once again, we couldn't overcome the system.

I want to thank our technical team and players for the extraordinary season they gave us.

Do you know how many times the 90-point threshold has been surpassed? Twice consecutively in the late 1980s, once by Fenerbahçe, once by Galatasaray. Apart from that, there hasn't been another 90-point season.

They received 4 red cards in Europe, but only 1 in the entire season.

“I AM MUCH MORE DETERMINED AND CONFIDENT”

Personally, I am much more determined and confident. In the last two years, as we broke free from shackles, you saw how well we assembled teams and brought in good coaches, yet we couldn't beat the system.

“THIS IS THE BEST SQUAD IN HISTORY”

Why am I hopeful? Because Fenerbahçe now has a very good squad. I say this is the best squad in . This squad has achieved the best results in Fenerbahçe's history.

“WE NEED 3-4, AT MOST 5 ADDITIONS”

Hopefully, we need to add 3-4, at most 5 players to this squad. For instance, we had issues on the wings, so we need to add players there.

and his team have been working on this since April. We also need to consider the interest in players we don't want to let go.

If we maintain the squad and add 3-4 more players, we'll have a much stronger team.

“NO ONE SHOULD DOUBT WE WILL BUILD A QUALITY SQUAD”

I would promise a championship if I knew it would happen, but it doesn't work that way. However, no one should doubt that we will build a squad that doesn't need such promises.

“I DON'T HAVE A PENNY TO CLAIM FROM FENERBAHÇE”

I have not a single penny to claim from Fenerbahçe. Those who say otherwise are lying disgracefully.

used to talk about honorable second places. Who did they refer to? Us? ? Başakşehir? They referred to a certain team. Unfortunately, we are experiencing a similar period now.

“OUR FEAR IS THE CLUB RETURNING TO WHERE IT WAS 6 YEARS AGO”

In life, only fools and the dead don't change. We all change, sometimes for better, sometimes for worse. Recently, hearing things like ‘I'm coming to make you champions, money and debt don't matter,' gave me chills, reminding me of the old days. Our fear is the returning to where it was 6 years ago. That's why I decided to enter this struggle.

FETÖ EMPHASIS

What's happening in mirrors Turkey's FETÖ process. Instead of cleaning up, these elements seem to have revived and strengthened.

“WE MUST CRUSH THESE BUGS ONE WAY OR ANOTHER”

We have reached a point in our fight against this system. To continue, we must crush these bugs one way or another.

BANKS ASSOCIATION

We promise to exit the Banks Association agreement within 3 years.

ANSWERING QUESTIONS ABOUT INJURIES

You're misinterpreting the health issue. There is only one team doctor, and all other treatments are done at the sponsor hospital. Blaming all our health problems on one person is wrong. We receive support from our group, from abroad, and from our sponsor hospital.

I didn't know the current president was such a Galatasaray fan when he took office. His look at at last year's championship ceremony was something even Wanda Nara wouldn't have given.”
