Press release

This match is not that important for us, says Turkey’s head coach


Mexico's head coach Matias Estanislao and team captain Ivone Martinez are all smiles during the interview with media at the Mixed Zone.

Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand, July 30, 2013 – Turkey’s head coach Mehmet Bedestenlioglu said that this match was not important as his team have already qualified. Following are quotes from head coaches and team captains of Turkey and Mexico.

Matias Va Estanislao, head coach of Mexico: “We are happy to win this match although this win does not give us any occasion for the next round. It’s a good proof that we could play them with the same level.”

Ivone Martinez, team captain of Mexico: “We are very happy. We played the bad three previous matches, but improved for a better game this time. We hope to play good matches in our classification round.

Mehmet Bedestenlioglu, head coach of Turkey: “This match is not that important for us as we have already advanced to the next round. In the World Championship, you can’t say that this player or that one is substitution or players from the bench. All of them are main players who play in a team in the championship. We focus for the next match which is very important for us.

Arelya Karasoy, team captain of Turkey: “We did not play our best, but as the coach said this match is not important for us. Some players had injury problems although they are not that serious. Some rested. Our next match will be very important. However, I’m not happy with the result because we lost.”
