Last week, we announced that we have reached an agreement with our new manager, Mr. Montella. I welcome him to our family. I wish him success in this very important role. Mr. Montella is a young, disciplined manager with a bright future, whose football career is full of success. As you know, he served successfully as the manager of Adana Demirspor in our country. He gained love and respect for himself with both his success as a coach and his attitude off the field. When he left here, he made nice and complimentary statements about Türkiye. He shared with the public how happy he was during his time working in Türkiye. Now we expect him to show the same stability for our National Team."Hamit Altıntop: "We believe that we can achieve our goal of participating in EURO 2024 with our new manager"

I wish this agreement to be beneficial. Our goal is to participate in 2024 European Football Championship to be held in Germany and to come together with our Turkish citizens there. It was disappointing that I could not participate as a football player in 2006 World Cup held in Germany. I hope we can partially compensate this disappointment by participating in EURO 2024.
