Minister of Youth and Sports Dr. Mehmet Muharrem Kasapoğlu made a statement to the press after the Anadolu Efes – Real Madrid match.
Stressing that he believes that Anadolu Efes will be the second Turkish team to become the champion in the Euroleague, Kasapoğlu said, “Successes in every branch make us very happy and excited. We are proud of our athletes, our teams. I congratulate everyone. Euroleague is a high-level organization. The success of our teams in this sense is very important. Because both Fenerbahçe and Anadolu Efes have taken this process successfully. Today, Anadolu Efes has written its name in the Final-Four. We have one championship. I believe that we will win our second championship with Anadolu Efes. Basketball is a branch that we attach importance to. We started the mobilization, which is the most important in the history of the Republic, at the point of 10 thousand hoops. We started a mobilization in our cities, neighborhoods and villages. We have efforts to earn our stars. Our walk and excitement will continue in basketball, as in all branches, in order to lower it. In basketball, our teams and athletes will continue to make us proud. I congratulate our Ergin teacher and Anadolu Efes wholeheartedly.
Anadolu Efes at Final Four!
