The Shakhtar’s captain Darijo Srna commented on the events that happened in today’s match.
- I was very pleased to come to Istanbul to play against the club with such great traditions. Probably, Fenerbahce has a truly great president as many people seem to support him so passionately. It is a pity that the game was suspended, it was crazy, but at the same time I witnessed the best atmosphere in my football life. It was a good, open game. I want their president to be released, so the local fans will not be forced to run onto the pitch. (Laughing.)
- Have you experienced anything like that in your career? - Similar things happened when I played for Hajduk, with the main reason being a string of poor results. This is the Turkish mentality, their character. They are madly in love with their players, the club’s president and so on. That was quite an unpleasant incident, but I can understand them to some extent.
