Istanbul Başakşehir boss Okan Buruk held his pre-match press conference this afternoon ahead of tomorrow’s affair between his side and Roma in the Europa League.
“First of all I want to emphasise one thing: tomorrow’s match will be important for us, for all of Istanbul and for all of Turkey. We will try to do our best,” he said.
“Roma have excellent attacker and they score as soon as they find a chance. Taking a look at the group, the results confirm what I’ve said previously: they can be defeated by anyone. We did well against them in the first half during our first meeting but then conceded 4 in the second half.”
“We’re going to take things one step at a time for this competition. Our first objective is to win tomorrow and qualify for the next round, then we’ll talk. I hope all of our fans support the team – I think the stadium will be packed tomorrow”.
