‘We offer ourselves on the road to the championship’
With the goal of becoming champion, Mertens believes he will perform better day by day. It is within our expectations. We continue to improve ourselves every day. We try harder every day to advance ourselves on the road to the championship.

“We loved Menemen very much”
Mertens said he loves Istanbul and said the country’s culture is very important to him.

‘Two goals in three games, not a very good result’
Mertens said he will need to show more of his attacking performances in the rest of the league, adding: “Two goals in three games is not very good. “First of all, we have to think about defense and then attack. If we want to be a top team, we have to take care of this. We had a lot of chances in the last game. We have to turn them into goals.” There are a lot of them. They have to get used to each other. We also have to think of this as a long-term project. .
