Fenerbahce Coach Explains Why Victor Moses Was Substituted At Half-Time In Istanbul DerbyPublished: February 27, 2019
Fenerbahce coach Ersun Yanal has refused to criticize Victor Moses over his performance in the first half against Besiktas in the Istanbul derby on Monday night.
In truth, Moses struggled for the first time since his arrival in Turkey but the Yellow Canaries gaffer has defended the Chelsea loanee, saying it was a tactical decision to change the left winger.
Fenerbahce scored three goals in the space of 12 minutes in the second half as they came from 3-0 down to draw 3-3 with Besiktas at Vodafone Park
''Football is a team sport, my speech at half-time was not the only reason. Everybody mush show a reaction,'' Yanal said to Fenerbahce's official website.
'We have players with international experience, we need them to react. I did not bring Moses or Isla out of the game because they played badly, the team needed a change''.
Moses has yet to go the distance in a Turkish Super Lig match since he debuted off the bench against Yeni Malatyaspor.
