West Ham manager Slaven Bilic has apologised to Beşiktaş fans for not winning the Süper Lig last season.
The Black Eagles were in the title race until the last three weeks and enjoyed an impressive Europa League run but finished the season without any silverware.
“I want to thanks the fans from the bottom of my heart we had a good team a team capable of winning the league but we could not keep playing at the same level in the last few games,” Bilic told Fanatik.
“I want to apologise to the fans we could not deliver them the league title.”
Bilic underlined that the reason Galatasaray won the league title was because they wanted it more.
“Galatasaray won four of their last key games 1-0 this is not down to chance we simply could not deliver when we needed it most we actually had more chances than Galatasaray but they scored and we did not,” he added.
Galatasaray kept a clean sheet in six out of their last seven games winning winning all six in which they shut out their opponents.
The Lions won the league for a record 20th time earning the right to wear the fourth star last season. Galatasaray also won the Turkish Cup – their sixth league and cup double.
Beşiktaş finished the league in third place and Bilic resigned from his position at the end of the season before joining West Ham.
