Praising for Slot: ‘I sometimes say: all we have to do is play football’

Orkun Kรถkcรผ is said to have been transformed under Arne Slot from an attacking midfielder to a defensive midfielder. De Feyenoorder states that under the current trainer he is fitter than ever.
In his role as controller, Kรถkcรผ is experiencing a strong season. โ€œNumber 10 is only on my shirt, otherwise that is a closed period. The controlling role, that is my position,โ€ he says in conversation with the Algemeen Dagblad. โ€œI used to want to see crazy actions. The players who did that were my favorite players. Now I look back at images of Iniesta and enjoy much more than I did before.โ€
โ€œI dont compare myself to Iniesta, but I want to play that way now,โ€ continues Kรถkcรผ, who sees how the team has grown together in the past year. โ€œAnd as a team, we also play well. That is the job of the trainer, who sends us into the field with such a clear play plan that it has all become so much easierโ€, he is lyrical about Slot. โ€œI sometimes say to teammates for fun: all we have to do is play football.โ€
