Fenerbahce are back in the title race says Dirk Kuyt [divider]
Fenerbahçe are back in the title race following the 1-0 win against Galatasaray in the Intercontinental derby according to Dirk Kuyt.
“It was a great result, we showed that we will fight till the end in the title race, we showed that we have championship winning quality today,” Kuyt told Lig Tv after the game.
Kuyt joined Fenerbahçe from Liverpool in 2012 for €1 million and has eight goals and four assists in all competitions for the Yellow Canaries this season.
The Yellow Canaries closed the gap with league leaders Galatasaray to just one point following the victory.
Fenerbahçe have not lost against Galatasaray at the Şükrü Saracoğlu stadium since 1999.
The defeat was Galatasaray’s first league loss under recently appointed manager Hamza Hamzaoğlu and snapped a four game win streak.
Fenerbahçe and Galatasaray have both won the Süper Lig 19 times. Beşiktaş who are also in the title race have won the league title on 13 occasions.
The Yellow Canaries take on Gençlerbirliği at the 19 Mayıs stadium next.
