Galatasaray vice-president underlined that the board are fully behind recently appointed manager Hamza Hamzaoğlu.

“Hamza Hamzaoğlu is a professional, if he was just an apprentice we would not have signed him,” Yasaman said.


“The team is in high spirits since his appointment, the players are all highly motivated and everybody is working hard to make the starting lineup. 

“Hamzaoğlu has great character, he is a great motivator and the players as well as staff love him. 

“We all have full faith in him, he has worked wonders in a short amount of time. 

“Hopefully this good form continues, we are still very much in the title race and have huge games coming up.”

Hamzaoğlu has coached Galatasaray for five games, winning four and losing once. The Lions have scored 21 times since the appointment of the former Akhisar manager.

The Istanbul giants face Mersin at the Türk Telekom Arena on Saturday.
