On Fenerbahce’s pre-season schedule: “A long and difficult season is waiting for us. We will have a hard work schedule for this and today we went over all the details together with my technical team. We also talked about our season plans.

We will continue the first part of our work in Istanbul. Then we will play matches against strong teams abroad. We want to prepare in the best way possible for the new season.”

On the club’s financial issues: “At this point, I would like to thank our President Mr Ali Koç and Semih Özsoy and our administration for providing us with the best possible working conditions after starting their jobs. By meeting all our needs in financial matters, we have created the most healthy working environment for my team and my players. We have a right and healthy structure.

Despite the difficult economic conditions that our club is experiencing, I thank them for the steps taken by our administration in order to protect this structure. I know that seasonal tickets renewal process is ongoing. I am sure that our fans will be with us as and they will do their jobs like every season.”
