Fenerbahce legend Alex de Souza has made a statement to the Portuguese press regarding the club’s new dark yellow-blue coach, Jorge Jesus.
After Fenerbahçe Club brought in Jorge Jesus as coach, Alex de Souza, who delivered a message of success to the Portuguese coach, made special statements to Record.
Mentioning that Jesus will be beneficial for Fenerbahçe, the Brazilian said: “As someone who loves the club and always wants the best for Fenerbahçe, it’s wonderful to have someone with Jesus’ talent as a coach.”
Speaking about Jesus’ success at Fenerbahçe, Alex de Souza said: “Success comes from the combination of various factors. The club must be aware of the expectations of Fenerbahçe fans and society. After his analysis, he will begin his work. However, he has all the qualities and experience to succeed at Fenerbahçe. If a few more factors are added to Jesus, great success will be achieved.
On the other hand, Alex de Souza, who said Jesus offered him an assistant coach, said he rejected that offer and would continue his coaching career in Sao Paulo’s infrastructure.
Here are Alex de Souza’s other statements on Jorge Jesus and Fenerbahçe:
“Fenerbahce have not been able to win the Super League for 8 seasons. Jorge Jesus was appointed to put an end to this desire. The impression is natural. However, he also experienced this pressure at Benfica, Flamengo and in other places where he worked.
“WE WILL EXPERIENCE AN UNMATCHED ATMOSPHERE”
“Jesus will see an excellent club in Fenerbahçe. He will experience a magnificent stadium and an unparalleled atmosphere. He will see the facilities that he can only see in the few big clubs in the world. Everything Jesus wants of the club, I believe that it will be accomplished within the limits of the possible. They will do their best for that.
“HE WILL RETURN SOON”
“To get used to living in different cultures, you have to have an open mind and respect the cultures of the people who live there. Life in Turkey is different from that of Brazil and Portugal. Turks are very hospitable and their passion for football is also great. That’s why Jesus and his team will do their best to get used to it as soon as possible. Culturally, Turkey is definitely a different place, but I think Jesus and Fenerbahçe will get used to each other in no time.
