Gaziantep football Club coach Marius Sumudica stated that his announcement that he would ask for money from his wife to support the club was a widely used joke in his country and stated that he wanted to complete his current contract and was open to contract negotiations.
In his written statement, Sumudica stated that he has always had a great bond with the Gaziantep family and that his contract has 4 months to expire.
“I AM EXTREMELY SORRIED BY CREATING THE IMAGE, THE ENEMY OF THE CITY”
Stating that he is always open to negotiations on the contract, the Romanian coach continued as follows:
“The last days were really hard for me. Maybe it was the most difficult times of my coaching career. So I want to express myself clearly. Even in difficult times, unrelated debates and being dismissed from the game, never bad against the Gaziantep FK management or our fans. I did not have expressions of intent, and I could not. I have a very high connection to this club and the city. So I always tried to defend this family, I became more aggressive in the matches and I suffered by being kicked out of the game by the referees. Sahin told me that I honored the city and wanted me to be a Turkish citizen. I am extremely sorry that the image of the enemy of the city has been made on me for the last few days. “
“I AM OPEN TO CONTRACT MEETINGS”
Expressing his regret about the recent events, Sumudica said:
“I want to touch on an important issue that is not related to football but for me. In my statements, I would call my wife and ask her to send money, there was a lot of talk, it caused controversy. This situation upset our fans and all our lovers. I also hope that he understands that there is nothing else. In this sense, I also quickly realized that it was a joke against me when I was told that the bonuses I paid would be better channeled to the club’s vault. In fact, here we see that there are two different jokes. If we come back to football-related issues, my official position is as follows: I have 4 months that I want to complete my current contract and I am open to contract negotiations. “
