He knows a lot about Turkish football!
Alexander Sørloth (24) came from Trabzonspor in the summer for EUR 20 million. And became runner-up with the club behind tomorrow’s opponent Basaksehir.
Both games against Istanbul ended in a draw, Sørloth scored a goal. How to Pack Basaksehir
Sørloth: “It’s a team that works primarily as a team. They don’t have one big star. But above all the offensive is strong, because they have very creative and goal-scoring players. At the back it wasn’t always secure. We can start with our power. We have to play fast and right in front of goal. I hope this is how we get our first three points. “
The Norwegian has to watch the kick-off from the bench. After just a few weeks of training, there is still a lack of coordination. Rival Yussuf Poulsen will probably begin.
“Still, the first few weeks were good,” says Sørloth. “Of course, the international break also meant that there wasn’t that much time to get to know the new system and the other players. And there is a difference between training in Turkey and here in Germany. But I like the intensity and the team! “
After all, he and his girlfriend Lena have now found a permanent home and moved out of the “Steigenberger”. Sørloth: “We only stayed in the hotel for a week. Now we have temporarily found an apartment – but want to move into a house at some point. “
