Serdal Adalı is one of the front-runners in Beşiktaş's club presidential election to take place this Sunday. The role of Vural Ak, the manager of Intercity who is on Adalı's management roster, is undeniable. Ak, who stated that Beşiktaş is a very strong brand said, "With our team we will manage this important brand in the most proper manner." We brought up many topics at hand with Ak, who was a guest this week on Eko Spor.
UEFA submitted a request placing a life-long restriction on Serdal Adalı . How will this situation effect the elections?
We do not think Beşiktaş will receive an undeserved penalty. In the case that Mr. Adalı does get fined, another of our management team members will become president and we will continue. Because penalties are individual. Our lawyer friends expect a result like this. I do not think it will be reflected to a large extent in the elections. Beşiktaş fans are very loyal. My prediction is that there will be a victory by a 55 to 44% (margin).
Will you speak about your transfer plans? Are the rumors about Torres false?
Lets say they are false but after the election results we decided to release the names of those we are meeting with. On the topic of managers, we want the person to come to believe in sportsmanship and the struggle. There are surprise names on the list. We will make low cost key transfers. Here we are obviously trying to work with managers that are not cons.
We pay 30 Million in yearly interest
What do you believe in when it comes to financial projects?
Sadly the position the 100-year-old Beşiktaş came to is internally painful. We examined the example of Borussia Dortmund. They made similar mistakes to Beşiktaş and went bankrupt. We also have a terrifying debt. We pay 30 million in yearly interest. Dortmund undertook a radical decision to change their management style. They created resources, gave importance to the foundations, and used the strength of their supporters. In essence everything ends at the management.
