“Others have said it and I’ve also said it; we are the best team in Turkey. We needed to prove that to the doubters and tonight we did that. Our opponents were tough, discplined. To come back from 1-0 and win was crucial. Our supporters played a role in this comeback and I want to thank them for this.”

“We will meet again the Turkish Cup. We’re in a tight calendar. But we must play these games. After three days, we have Fenerbahce again and after a month and a half, there’s the second leg (of the Turkish Cup). We want to be the winner of all those games.”

After being asked about the title race in the Turkish Super Lig, he made the team’s intentions clear;

“After winning defeating Fenerbahce tonight, we are 3rd in the league. Now, ahead of us, we have Basaksehir and Galatasaray. We want to catch up to them.”
