This is a normal thing. We try hard to increase the performance of the players and let them play in team harmony. As in the case of Cenk. We have also been supporting Ege since the beginning of the season. “We’re bringing him into the game. He has self-confidence. I.” I think he’s positive and playing well. Our defenders were good too. One of them came back from injury, Amartey had a minor illness. Bailly is tired too. He’s not perfect both competitively and physically, but I think he’s successful.”
