In the first week of the Super League, Alanyaspor defeated Medipol Başakşehir 1-0 away. Speaking at the press conference after the match, Alanyaspor Coach Çağdaş Atan stated that they played a really good game in the first half and said, “My team played a last friendly match against Konyaspor. We didn’t show well there, but my team really gave the first half of this match the image we saw in the camp, working and playing every part correctly. In the game in the second half, there were new players, late comers and injured players, whose physics quality was not ready. That’s why we waited for the second half because we were not one hundred percent physically. As Alanyaspor, we cannot finish the matches like this. But if we can spread the game in the first half to 70, 80 minutes, we will show a competitive Alanyaspor with high brand value this year. “I would like to thank my players for the game and reaction in the first half,” he said.
“We can set goals after seeing the strong game”
Talking about the team’s goals, Atan said, “We haven’t talked about goals yet, it would be delusional to set goals on such a change. It would be a dream to say that we will push the summit right now. We raise expectations, we don’t need to do that, and it’s not in our favor. Our aim is to become a team after the new players, especially after the national break, and we can approach one hundred percent physically and set a goal after seeing the strong game. There is no situation to set a target at the moment,” he said.
