Zico: "I Will Try To Make This Team A Champion"
With the week off from Super Lig competition and many players involved in national team play, Fenerbahce boss Zico spoke with the media earlier this week. Speculation has been circulating lately about possible transfers out for Stephen Appiah, Tuncay Sanli, and Diego Lugano, while Fenerbahce has been linked with transfers in for Roberto Carlos and Julio Baptista. However, Zico avoided the rumor mill and stated "’If the President has some kind of transfer in his mind, he will tell you.’ ’I try to make this team the champion with my players right now. I’m satisfied with their performances. Please don’t ask me these questions." He elaborated that he has not requested any transfers from the club.
Regarding the Super Lig race, Zico stated "The league is not over yet. Besiktas and Galatasaray are behind us but everything can happen in football. We respect our competitors but we only care what we do." He went on to say that he was pleased with Serdar's performance in goal, and that he plans to continue to utilize him in the starting lineup as long as he is playing well.
