"It's a job that's been done by the whole club, the administrative part. His arrival was complicated with the visa issue but the recruiting department did a good job of seeing a player who was playing in Division 2. He can be a very good player in terms of quality of recovery, of clearing the ball. He has a good left foot. It's rare to find left-sided center backs. It allows a team to be more balanced. He is young, he still has a very large possibility for improvement. We hope he will quickly be a strong asset for the club. He can bring balance to a central pairing where having a left-sided player is very interesting, especially for the relaunch of the season. He has that strength that Turkish defenders can have. There are a lot of very good young Turkish defenders currently in Europe. This is really a job at which this country works very well. They have that natural strength and power combined with a certain quality in the game that allows them to be among the best defenders in the world."
