Şenol Güneş: “We are heart-broken by the outcome but holding our heads high.”

“We are heart-broken that we won’t be able to see the month of May in the Europa League this season. With a promising result from the first leg, we were hoping to make the semi-finals. However, despite giving our best and creating many opportunities throughout the game, we lost our qualification chances on a close penalty shoot-out. My players are holding their heads high because they represented Turkey quite well in this tournament. Now, we will focus on winning the Turkish national title and earning a ticket to the next year’s Champions League. We’ll be back next season.”
