Galatasaray head coach Ataman Güneyligil has issued an official statement regarding the scenes from the 1st leg of the CEV Cup Finals against Dinamo Krasnodar.



Recall that Ataman Güneyligil accused Krasnodar crew of revealing his tactics during the match.

This is the official statement of Ataman Güneyligil that can be found on Galatasaray website.

“I have realized that the tactics I give my players during the match using hand gestures specific to volleyball, were being leaked to our opponent’s bench in a way against fair play by a member of our opponent’s technical staff, who sat at the Dinamo Krasnodar scoutman desk. Russian player Tatiana Kosheleva’s -who sat right next to this technical staff member mentioned above since she was out of Dinamo Krasnodar roster for this match due to her injury- efforts to make this incident, which took place between me and a member of Dinamo Krasnodar technical staff, look like as if it took place between me and her and to take the matter to a completely irrelevant scope via what she shares in her social media accounts is unacceptable. Volleyball is a game that is played within fair play rules and we are part of this game. In this context; despite how right we were we did not even react that to the situation when our opponent’s technical staff’s pored water on the ground right before the match point, just to cool down the game, or even preventing moppers from doing their work. We consider the player’s claims and this ugly discourse as parts of a strategy to create an unnecessary tension prior to the rematch that we will play on Saturday in Krasnodar. But we will not fall for it. We will prepare ourselves the best way possible for the final’s decisive match and we will fight until the last ball drops on the floor to bring that cup to our country.”

If Kosheleva had played the match, there would have been NO way that Galatasaray could beat Krasnodar!
No-one cares about what your statement is.

I care about your statement. Now, we understood the situation. It is the small, blond statistician then. However, Kosheleva kept contacting with the fans and provoked them on purpose, I saw her several times. Players do not contact with the rival fans, that is not usual. I do not think that Kosheleva will play in rematch. Go and play your game there and find a way to hide your tactics from that statistician. He will be there to do it again.
