I am very comfortable in conscience as I worked until the last minute before I found out that it ended, solved the problems with all the players, including Shane Larkin, who will be on the squad next week, and I found the common ground with their coaches and handed over them in a clean way. I wish success in all of their matches and extend my deepest gratitude to our national team and the Turkish people who never left me alone during my duty. “
