Galatasaray’s new coach Mustafa Denizli will be at the Estadio Vicente Calderón for his side’s UEFA Champions League game against Atlético tonight.
Denizli had principally agreed to take over at Galatasaray last Monday and announced he would begin his duties this Thursday. However, he explained that speaking with caretaker coach Claudio Taffarel had changed his mind: "Taffarel told me yesterday evening that my presence would be a boosting factor for the team. I will watch the match in the stadium, I will be with the team. I will give my support to them from the heart."
The experienced coach will travel to Madrid by a private jet together with club president Dursun Özbek. Explaining why he didn’t lead the team against Atlético, Denizli said: "It would be improper to make such a move before preparing and without knowing much about the team."
Dinamo captain Domagoj Antolić on his side's 3-0 defeat against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium:
I think we played a reasonable match. In some moments we were playing at our best, but if we look at the full 90 minutes they completely deserved their victory. Again, we were conceding cheap goals, and we are playing on the level where every cheap mistake will be punished.
