Good defense, if we do the right defense, he said that this team is the team that can win a match with the previous players. We had shortcomings here, we had mistakes. In some matches, we had good defense. We could not win the matches due to our inability or mistakes. Our teacher has worked on defense since his arrival and explained what we can do. With this, we have become a team that conceded very few goals in the last 6 games and made a successful defense. I hope we will show a much more successful performance together at the end of the season. “

I kept working, knowing that that opportunity would come to me during this period of time I did not play. I saw the matches I did not play as an opportunity. I saw what I could do, what I had to do better. When that opportunity came to me, when my teacher said “I will play you”, I was very happy and tried to do my best. You should always keep your body ready, and I did that. . “

Of course, it is a dangerous and experienced one. The team is at the same time. But more important than our opponent is what we will do. We will try to do the best as always. We play inside. We will not have fans, but we will definitely try to take advantage of playing inside. We will not have fans in the Galatasaray match, but I said it before. Trabzonspor is a great team. The big team is always trying to win, inside and outside. We will try to win by using the home advantage. “
“WE DO THE RIGHT WORK”
Flavio underlined that every change in football requires time and said:

I hope at the end of the season. we will be. “
