Frank Rijkaard Under Fire  In Turkey !

This is not happening first time in Turkey...... 

Before Frank Rijkaard, there has been few well known coaches in the world , got the same treatment as Frank Rijkaard is getting now....

Names like....Parrera... Skibbe ...Gerets............


Galatasaray coach Frank Rijkaard has been on the hot seat lately by some of the absurd Turkish sports media...

Galatasaray's disapointmet run this year has anger a lot of people from Turkish media and Galatasaray fans too....

This weekend's loss at home against Antalyaspor in the last seconds of the match was the driller for Rijkaard.


Back to back losses and draws made a lot of Galatasaray fans furious......

Galatasaray coach Frank Rijkaard even said it was worst match they played...

While He was talking to LIG TV reporter, he said exactly this...."It was a bad day for us, and these kinds of defeats make us feel bad. It’s got nothing to do with concentration or mentality, but with quality. When you’re one goal up, you have to keep control of the ball.” he added.

That "QUALITY' word has been the main attraction. from Turkish media..

They accused Rijkaard with not backing his own players ..They accused him with not focusing on his team and more....

What Turkish media forgot is, what he said after that "quality" word....

"When you’re one goal up, you have to keep control of the ball."

He was talking about quality control....ball possession......

if you can't do that , you will lose the match....

He was upset and disgusted, after that last minute loss..

Now,the Turkish media even talking about sacking Rijkaard and bring in Fatih Terim, back!


Frank Rijkaard has been under very heavy fire, because he is not playing Turkish National team stopper  Servet Cetin on the team too!


WE all know, how Frank Rijkaard was greated at the Istanbul airport when he arrived with a mob of fans cheering him ....

Until that moment ,besides one or two Turkish journalist, none of those guys and gals who are destroying Frank Rijkaard, with their absurd pens and words ,would probably never saw Rijkaard until,he came to Turkey

Maybe, on Televison....,,,,,,,,,,,

Just in this month's UEFA' "Champions" magazine, Frank Rijkaard was quted as saying, "Football here is emotional and that can make long-term planing very difficult,you can't tell people be patient"

Isn't that the truth though.............

That is why, consistency and long-term planing, will never happened with Turkish football and Turkish soccer teams....

I think another world famous foootball coach will leave Turkey , just like the other ones!
