Galatasaray President Dursun Özbek: ‘Goals that no one can dream of’

President of Galatasaray Dursun Uzbekmade statements at the groundbreaking ceremony of Kemerburgaz Facilities.

Özbek started his speech by celebrating the 19 May Commemoration of Atatürk, Youth and Sports Day and talked about the importance of the facilities for Galatasaray.

Dursun Özbek’s statements are as follows:

“Today is the 104th anniversary of May 19, one of the turning points in the history of the Republic of Turkey. The landing of Gazi Mustafa Kemal in Samsun is not only the first step of our nation’s war of independence, but also the birth of young ideas that will take Turkey forward. It was a gift to young people by Kemal.”


“The goals that no one could dream of were born from these young ideas. Defeating the non-Turkish teams set by our founder Ali Sami Yen and his friends is exactly such a goal. We normally held this ceremony on February 22. Due to the earthquake disaster, we had to do it today. We will leave this facility to our grandchildren. It will be one of the most important legacies.”


“Galatasaray is the most important sports club of the republic with its glorious past and achievements. Being the face of the republic in the 100th anniversary of the Republic suits Galatasaray the most. We will bring our Galatasaray to greater success with these projects.”


“Mustafa Kemal’s word about the youth is very valuable, he says, ‘We will leave everything to the youth. All my hope is in the youth.’
