“I have dreams in Beşiktaş, the first one is to be a champion”

The experienced football player, who said that expectations were very high last season, but that they could not balance the morale due to the failure and injuries in the Champions League, he said that he met the reaction of the fans for his performance as normal.

Expressing that the training was quite intense, Kenan Karaman said, “The trainings are quite intense. We work really hard. The whole team came to the camp in a very fit shape. The teacher continued from there. He saw that we were fit. There are more fitness-based trainings. In the next camp, too. We will move on to more detailed studies. The coach had already warned us at the end of the season. He warned us to stay fit. It is a heavy camp period. Everyone took good care of themselves. Everyone had their vacation and worked well. We did very high-tempo training. Almost everyone had very good training. took it out,” he said.

“WE ARE TRYING TO ENSURE THE NEW INSTALLER TO BE WELL ADAPTABLE TO THE TEAM”

Expressing that they got along very well as a team, Kenan Karaman said, “The environment is really nice and fun. We get along very well with our teammates. We try to ensure that the new players adapt well to the team. They should also feel at ease and join the team as soon as possible. “We are recruiting them so that they can make good contributions. We will have new friends. We are waiting for them as well,” he said.

“THE EXPECTATIONS FROM US LAST SEASON WERE TOO HIGH, AND MORALE DROPPED WHEN WE DID NOT ACHIEVE”

Kenan Karaman, who stated that the expectations for the black and white team were quite high last year, but they went through unfortunate times, said, “Last year, the expectations were very high. We kept our own expectations high. Of course, when we could not achieve these, the morale fell down a lot. The results we got in Europe brought the morale of the team down. There was also a bit of bad luck. There were coronavirus cases and injuries in the first weeks. We couldn’t achieve the balance we wanted. We almost never got on the field as a full squad. Most players, including me, had to take charge in other positions. Last season, we brought young players to the team, which was an advantage. “But of course, Beşiktaş’s goal is always the championship. It is to get good results in Europe as well. Unfortunately, we couldn’t achieve them. I hope we will make up for it this season,” he said.

“There was an emotional and mental collapse”

Kenan Karaman, who received a reaction from the fans with his performance last season, said that the reaction was normal because the expectations were high. Pointing out that he could not spend a camp period with the team last season due to the European Championship, the 28-year-old winger said, “Last season, I could not spend a full camp period in Beşiktaş. There was the European Championship. It also had an effect. When the European Championship with the national team went badly, I was both emotionally and mentally. I had a collapse. Afterwards, when the team didn’t go well, this inevitably reflected on my performance. The reaction of the fans is quite normal here. Because you play in Beşiktaş. There are expectations. When you play as a striker, people expect goals. When you don’t score, of course there will be criticism. Ben I really took good care of myself throughout my entire career. I always did extra work. My self-confidence is always endless. There has been an intimacy with the fans in the last few weeks. I am very happy that I ended the season like that. I hope I will have a good camp period this season and show another performance. I believe.” said.

“PLAYING ALONE IN THE CENTER IS NOT A POSITION I WAS USED FOR”

Kenan Karaman, who stated that he worked alone in the forward end at the beginning of the season, said:

“Playing alone in the front wasn’t a position I’m used to. Of course, it had an effect. However, the coach gave me a task like that. I try to complete every task in the best way. It has happened, but it would not be right to attribute it only to this.”

“HOCA CALLED ME BEFORE THE FENERBAHÇE MATCH AND SAID HE TRUSTING ME FOR THE RIGHT wing”

Kenan Karaman, who served as a wing-back in the last weeks of last season, said that playing in this region is good for his career development. Stating that he performed well in the last matches, Karaman used the following statements:

“It would be wrong to consider that position as a full right-back. It is not a classic right-back. I can say that it is a different style of the positions I played in the open before. Because you are both offensive and defensive. I did not think of such a position. He called me to his room. There was a conversation between us. He thought that I could play there. He trusted me and asked if you wanted to play there. Of course, in such an important derby match, I said, ‘I will do my best’. “I worked hard. I really think I performed well in the last matches, including the Fenerbahçe game. It was good for me as well. Discovering new positions for my development is a good thing for my development. That’s why I didn’t have an attitude to play there.”

“3-4-3 WE WILL PLAY THIS SYSTEM MORE USEFUL”

The teacher thinks of me there in the triple system. That position passes as the wing-back. I will represent Beşiktaş in the best way, as in the last matches, if my teacher gives me a job. I played there before in Germany, in the Bundesliga. There were teachers who used that system. It is a system that is not seen much in Turkey. Some teams are just trying to try again. It’s a really tough system. What I mean difficult is the details of the system. Everyone needs to know what to do. Frankly, I was surprised that our teacher immediately applied this system when he came, and that we got good results right away. Now that we have time, we are working in more detail. Who needs to go where, who needs to put pressure where. When someone puts pressure on the front, how the others should take a position is a really detailed study. This will make us more committed to this system. I believe that we will play this system more beneficially,” he said.

“MY AND ROSIER’S PERFORMANCE INCREASED BY MOVING TO THE RIGHT SIDE”

Expressing that the rivalry with Rosier will reflect positively on the team, Kenan Karaman said, “I see this very positively and positively. Before that, Rosier did not have many alternatives in that position. My good performance there will lead us and Rosier to a rivalry. Competition will always be a team. “I believe that this competition will affect both of us very positively and that we will both perform well there,” he said.

“I HAVE DREAM IN BEŞİKTAŞ. BEING THE FIRST CHAMPION”

Expressing that he did not set goals or assists in the new season, Kenan Karaman said that his goal is to be better than last season. Kenan Karaman continued his words as follows:

“I didn’t set a number in my head. But first of all, I want to be better than last year. I’m really proud in every game I wear this jersey. I also have dreams in Beşiktaş. The first is to become a champion, to experience it with Beşiktaş. I’ve been very focused on that this year. This year, I prepared myself accordingly. I am very concentrated at camp both before and now. That’s my primary goal.”

“I RECEIVED OFFER FROM 3 GREAT TEAMS”

Saying that he received offers from 3 big teams, Kenan Karaman said, “I got offers from 3 big teams when I was in the European Championship. However, Beşiktaş was the one who treated me most warmly and interested me. Beşiktaş gave me the best feeling. My choice is really easy. I chose Beşiktaş and I hope that with this choice I will make my dreams come true,” he said.

“I hope I will wear the national jersey again”

Kenan Karaman, who also stated that he aims to return to the national team again, said, “In the last 2 camps, I was not called up to the national team. I always went for 4 years, but the last 2 camps did not happen. We last met with Kuntz after training in Riva. We had a nice conversation. He also with his team. He is following us together. I will show a good performance in Beşiktaş and I hope I will wear the national jersey again,” he said.

“AFTER THE MATCH WE WERE DEATH 3-0, THEY CALL US TO THE GROUNDS, I WAS VERY EMPTY”

Kenan Karaman, who was asked about the message to the fans for the next season, ended his words as follows:

“Our fans supported us incredibly well last year. They stood behind us unbelievably even in the games we played poorly. I remember very well, they called us to the stands after we lost 3-0 to Kasımpaşa at home. I was very emotional there and it made me think a lot. “I am so focused that we want to bring good things to our fans this year. Beşiktaş fans are always behind their team. We will show a good performance and hopefully have a good season with them.”
