First, 3:3 against Luxembourg, and now 1:2 defeat in the Faroe Islands – the Turkey took first place in the C1 group of the League of Nations but recorded disappointing results in the last two matches.
The situation in the division
With this, the team coached by Stefan Kuntz made things difficult and ruined the playoffs of the European Championship. Suppose the Georgian national team defeats Gibraltar today and the Greek national team wins against Northern Ireland tomorrow Turkey will not be able to play in the semi-finals of the Euro 2024 playoffs on their home field and will have to play as a guest against Greece.
“We faced a team that wanted more than us and fought more than us. In the last two matches, we ran less than our opponents. It’s very sad and painful,” Kuntz said after the loss to the Faroes, adding: “The Faroese’s good performance was not a surprise for us if we didn’t react to their good performance, that is, our impotence was a surprise to me.”
Kuntz also noted that 10-11 leading players were missing but added that the draw with Luxembourg and the defeat with the Faroes could not be justified.
Press about the disastrous performance of Turkey
Today, the Turkish press severely criticizes Kuntz. Fans on social networks are demanding the immediate release of Kuntz. “Shameful Night” – this was the title of Aydınlık newspaper.
“What is this? Everyone should pay for this, Kuntz first of all,” writes the most famous Turkish publication Hürryet.
“We are not going to let the coach go, we will continue working with him. We are confident in his abilities. The coach and the players work 24 hours a day to create a solid foundation,” – these are the words of the sports director of the Turkish Football Federation, Hamit Altintop, – “When we say that we support the coach, it does not mean that we should not criticize. It is clear that after such results there will be criticism, but criticism should be constructive.”
“We will definitely get out of this situation. We will stand up. I am as motivated as ever,” Kuntz said.
