Speaking to reporters after the game, the Turkish tactician hailed his boys for their beautiful performance,adding that Onyekuru played a key role in the victory.

“We deserved three points, we got it by playing and playing well. We played every part of the game well. The game could go away for the first 20 minutes. We ensured that the ball remained with us.”

“Each match has a different story. It is not the same as playing Fenerbahce here with any match you play on your stadium.”

“Sometimes, what you think in theory may not be in practice. Sometimes we don’t think so; but we tried to get out of the blocks. We did this and we took many positions with Onyekuru.”
