Galatasaray to the organization, which is like a farewell to the legend Arda Turan; Galatasaray Sports Club Vice President Metin Öztürk, Board Member İsmail Sarıkaya, 1905 GSYİAD President İbrahim Hatipoğlu and members attended.

“He carried the Turkish flag in Europe in the best way”

Speaking in the program, Galatasaray Vice President Metin Öztürk said, “Does a person feel happy when he leaves? The captain is not taken, but he made him happy when he left. It brought a great income to Galatasaray. We are not used to seeing those who think of the club before themselves. As a Galatasaray fan, I am grateful to him. He is in Europe. He carried the Turkish flag in the best possible way. With the support of GSYİAD during our administration, I hope we will bring it to a different place with a rapid infrastructure move with a facility. In the meantime, our dear captain will continue to support Galatasaray. I hope it will be experienced in a short time during our administration. ” used the phrases.


After the emotional clip and plaque presented to Arda Turan by GSYİAD, 1905 GSYİAD President İbrahim Hatipoğlu said, “First of all, I want to thank him in front of all of you. We wanted to remind you gradually how Arda has served Galatasaray and Turkish football, but it is possible to tell with squares. Arda is a captain who cries while everyone laughs. That’s why we have to know his value for a lifetime. We said thank you for what you’ve done and will keep us alive because I believe Arda Turan just took a break from his service to Galatasaray. I believe and support him wholeheartedly.” said.

Arda Turan, who was very touched by the video and organization made for him, said:

“I would like to welcome my esteemed presidents and you, our esteemed members. First of all, GSYİAD is very valuable to us. First of all, I am a Galatasaray fan who knows the value and value of GSYİAD very well. Today, for the first time in a long time, I saw something being done for me. Throughout my life, I have always been in Galatasaray.” “I tried to love Galatasaray unconditionally. Galatasaray never made me lose, it always made me gain. We will do whatever task falls to us for the success of Galatasaray. We are always here as fans, meals together, travels together, infrastructure, because the love of Galatasaray has no meaning for me. After a long time, I feel very bad.” I felt valued and special.”



“I want to bring to Galatasaray what Guardiola brought to Barcelona”

I wonder what Ajax is doing. Afterwards, my preference is not to start with a team halfway. I want to be a systems teacher. I want to be a school teacher. I want to bring to Galatasaray what Guardiola brought to Barcelona.
I can start with a team that has a goal, a project. I haven’t decided which game I want to play. It is necessary to play the game played by Barcelona and City with quality players. I think this style of play is not suitable for Turkey. I’m more in favor of the realistic side of things.

“Barcelona’s game played by Manchester City…”


If the opponent is putting pressure on you, I’m also in favor of playing directly. For many years, I played with effective forwards and scored goals from spinning balls. I want to mix Barcelona’s game of Manchester City with impromptu football. I want to apply this to Galatasaray in the best way possible. Last year we were eliminated by Barcelona. We made a very good pass. A coach must dominate the team. If you know the enthusiasm of Ali Sami Yen, you can not pass a foul in your own half at the 75th minute. You can throw a long ball there and collapse there with the audience. Because especially Galatasaray fans put that ball into that goal. The passing game is very valid, but together with the club culture, we can do more valuable things.


About Galatasaray infrastructure

“It is really necessary to be an educator to organize the infrastructure. My soul is a competitor. There were 8-10 players that I selected last year. We cannot bring good coaches to our infrastructure with these budgets. We must be brave and patient. As Galatasaray, I am not sure that we have this patience. Even I have 1-2 years. Then I expect a response, this is wrong. Galatasaray should have a game culture and this should start from the bottom. At La Masia, they teach the players to love the game first, tactics come into play after the age of 13. We really forgot to make our children love football. In the 60th minute in Galatasaray infrastructure When one of the games came out, his parent asked, ‘Why did he come out?’ “We need to change our perspective from our parents first. We should bring parent meetings to the infrastructures. But I don’t think we can achieve this in terms of infrastructure. We need to bring experts, I can help. We need to bring the right people to the right places. While I’m dealing with the infrastructure, I don’t just watch the game from the sidelines. When the normal pitch is empty,” he texts. they chose artificial turf. ‘Who decided?’ I asked, no one answered. Then the man in charge of the turf over there made the decision.”


Most memorable match

FenerbahceI always remember the match we beat ‘Ali Sami Yen’ and the match Nonda scored. I thought they were better than us. I’ve never been a champion before. It was an unforgettable day for me.”

Transfer of Selcuk Inan to Galatasaray

“I think my contribution to Selcuk Inan’s transfer to Galatasaray was more than anyone else. Selcuk had a good offer from Fenerbahce at that time. I said to him, ‘Fenerbahce has Alex, Emre and Vederson, you can’t use free kicks. You can even get the crown if you want. You can use it,’ I said (laughing) and that’s how I tricked him at the national team camp.

“I got offers from Beşiktaş and Fenerbahçe”

Trabzonspor outside Besiktas and Fenerbahce, I received offers that could not be refused. But I am an emotional, loving person. My biggest title is being a Galatasaray fan.

Taking part in transfers

“I said to the management, ‘If you need anything, I’ll come right away.’ We wanted to but it didn’t happen.”
