Hamza Hamzoglu doesn’t think that he is the reason behind the sudden improvement in the performance of Galatasaray.
Hamzoglu has guided Galatasaray to two consecutive victories in the Turkish Super Lig.
Galatasaray wasn’t playing particularly well under the previous boss Cesare Prandelli.
But, after the appointment of Hamzoglu, the players have started showing a different sort of body language on the pitch.
Yes, during the European fixture versus Arsenal on 9th, Galatasaray did not play as well as they could have.
But, they healed the wounds of that defeat to some extent when they literally crushed Torku Konyaspur by 5-0 yesterday.
When asked if he would like to credit himself for turning Galatasaray’s performance, Hamzoglu said, “No, absolutely not. It’s not possible for a new coach to come in and make a difference overnight. The players need to be given all the credit. The way they responded to the game, it was fantastic.”
“We scored quite early in the game; still, the approach was to move ahead and attack. Not at any point of time did we look to hold back and that’s what I liked the most, the attitude of the players.”
“Konyaspor is not a side which allows you to score goals easily against them especially when they are playing at home. So, we can be proud of the fact that we have beaten them by such a large margin, but, I would remind everyone that this is just one game. We will have to keep putting on such performances if we have to win the league.”
Presently, Besiktas is ahead of Galatasaray in the Turkish top division table, leading with 29 points in 13 games.
Galatasaray is not too far behind though. They also have got 28 points.
