Even though she has a contract with Galatasaray, Pelin will likely move to a new team.

The injury prevented you to perform at the best level last season. How do you feel now and are you completely ready for the next season?

It was really difficult time for me. Such things can happen in sports. During this time I learned a lot of things. One of them always being strong psychology and stay calm down. I stayed strong in this situation and now I am ready for the next season. I believe just one thing – ‘always work for what you believe and what you want.“

You were on loan in Besiktas last season, how would you describe this period behind you?

I would describe as an unlucky season. I was very happy when I signed for Besiktas and had the opportunity to work with coach Kamil Soz. Unfortunately, a sudden injury at the start of the season made me unable to play half of the season. It was a season with great lessons and experience about patience for me.“

What are your plans for summer 2018?

If I want to make the best for my future, I have to work every time. I started to work in April, also I am going to continue until the beginning of the season.“

You are still a player of Galatasaray. Are you going to stay in this team or?

My agreement will be completed at the end of the 2018-2019 season. Galatasaray is one of the best teams in Turkey. Currently, I am evaluating the options with my manager Tunc Afsar to make the right step for the next season.“

Where do you see yourself in five years?

I believe that I am walking on the right path. I want to be a player who is working hard.“
