Bilic critical of Besiktas decision to play home games in Ankara

Beşiktaş manager Slaven Bilic has stated that he is not keen on the clubs decision to play their remaining home games in Ankara.

“I cannot wait for the Vodafone Arena to be built, the sooner we have a stadium the better,” Bilic told Fanatik.

“I would have preferred to play our home games at the Fatih Terim stadium, we are Beşiktaş, we have millions of fans, we have Çarşı, I cannot understand why we could not find a suitable stadium in Istanbul.”
