Galatasaray coach Fatih Terim’s comment on the loss of PSV

In the first match of the Champions League 2nd Qualification Round, Galatasaray lost 5-1 away to PSV. At the press conference held after the match, Galatasaray Technical Director Fatih Terim made a statement.

Underlining that PSV had a comfortable victory, Terim said, “We congratulate our opponent, they were better than us. I said yesterday that we are playing with one of the different teams in Europe. They played better than us, they got a comfortable victory. Galatasaray fans understood what I mean better. “Why did we want 3 years? We will do what is necessary for our team to play at these levels. PSV both won differently and is closer to the round than us. We are sorry, but of course, we will do what is necessary in time,” he said.


Regarding the fact that Mostafa Mohamed and Radamel Falcao started the match on the bench, the experienced coach said, “We had to leave because we did not have the original man of some positions. Neither Falcao is ready nor Mostafa is ready. We found it more appropriate to put him into the game later. Everyone’s comments after the losses. It could be different. Our game plan was like that. You start with a goal in the first minute, the players will start to get bored. According to our plan, we had 2 quick men ahead. We caught it in some positions. If you concede such simple goals at these levels, you will fall behind. The two strikers we have, with their physiques and concentration, can beat them We’ll put it on the field,” he said.
