“This is my last election. Besiktas will be governed by a new president in the year 2022. Together, we will fight for Besiktas for the next three years. We will continue to work in a more ambitious, vigorous way than we did when we came in 2012. We will be more radical in the new era, we will make adjustments to the budget, reduce the expenses. A new page is opened for Besiktas,” Orman said.
