Kayserispor lost 2-1 against Trabzonspor, which they hosted in the 8th week of Spor Toto Super League.
Speaking at the press conference held after the match, Kayserispor Coach Çağdaş Atan criticized the referee management, “I can’t say that I appreciate or like Ümit teacher very much.” said and added:
” AS A CITY, WE ARE FIGHTING WITH GREAT CHALLENGES”
“The relationship between Trabzonspor and Kayserispor is very important to us. It is very important for us that the relations between the teams that have previously been declared sister teams continue in a healthy way. We should not take this into a situation that will harm the relations between us and Trabzonspor. We need to act in the same consistency. Trabzonspor is the champion of last year. “There is a good technical team. It was a good match. It was a pleasant match. We are struggling with great difficulties as a city. Our transfer board is closed. Our valuable management is doing its best to make the players financially comfortable. These are taken care of.”
“WE KNOW THAT WE DON’T HAVE A CHANCE TO WIN AGAINST THE REFEREES”
“We are fighting a lot on the field. We do not want to fight against the referees in our fight. We know that we do not have a chance to win against the referees. In my 2 years of coaching life, I have not spoken about the referees until today. Today, Onur’s position is first pulled from his arm, he is hit in the back of his neck. Then a penalty is given against us even though he survived.”
“HE CAN SAY THE SAME THING TO ME”
“I can’t say that I appreciate and like Ümit teacher very much. He can say the same for me. He can make mistakes. He may miss it. He hasn’t seen this position anyway. This should not happen. I am in favor of merit. When we make mistakes, we lose our jobs in the last period. I think that merit should be valid everywhere.”
