“I believe that we will be champions. Fenerbahce always plays for the title.

“There is always pressure on a football player. I always played in big clubs, and there was always pressure.

“Fenerbahce is also a big club and I know there will be pressure here. This is a club I love very much. I will do my best. I hope everything will be fine.

I can’t give a date about when to play but I want to play as soon as possible.”
