Beşiktaş's new coach Şenol Güneş said, "We aren't thinking about sending our goalkeeper Cenk Gönen to another team as long as he does not want to. We deserved the win. My footballers played well in some parts of the match and bad in some parts. We are a big team. We must attack more and give the rivals less opportunities. Quaresma's benching after the first half was a tactical choice. I'm pleased with his performance."
