While we were playing this badly, we got into the position of 3-4 goals.” he said.

“There was a very different Galatasaray in the second half. We dominated the game in the 20-25 minute section, we got very clear goal positions, but we couldn’t find the goal. We won the match with 1 goal in the last section. Of course, it’s nice to win away. The ongoing humidity has a negative effect on the players. We are experiencing the negative effects of being in August in terms of performance. We needed such a win. I am happy to get this, but we should be better overall.

There has been no clear development for us about him. We are looking for another player to support us at the front.” made its assessment.

“Kerem is very important and valuable for Galatasaray. He is one of the best players of last season. He is a national player. He will serve both Turkish football and Galatasaray for a long time. Kerem works hard, he does every training correctly. He did a good job in the training camp at the beginning of the season. “The game should not be judged solely on Kerem. When we become a complete team, the performance of the players will also increase. I think Kerem’s performance will also go higher.”
Buruk evaluated the performance of Bafetimbi Gomis, the owner of Galatasaray’s 2 goals in 3 games this season, saying, “Gomis scored a very good goal. He is a very important football player for us as a character. played a role.” he said.

“The transfer period is very difficult. The players who come to you put pressure on the team and in other positions. Sometimes they reduce their performance. When a player’s name is mentioned, the performance of the football player playing in that region decreases. Players who are offered a transfer want to leave, and when they cannot go, they lose their morale. We will be more comfortable. There has been a process related to Nelsson. He loves Galatasaray very much. He is very happy to be here. He attaches great importance and value here. Maybe it was tempting for him to play in La Liga, but “I am very happy to be here, too. Galatasaray” love you so much.’ “He said.
