Yilmaz about choosing the Netherlands: ‘This is a football institute, just like Brazil’

In an interview with ESPN, Burak Yilmaz looked back on his first weeks at Fortuna Sittard. Last summer, the Turkish striker made the switch from Lille OSC to Limburg, where the season has been quite noisy so far.
Yilmaz himself sees that the first few weeks have gone difficult. โ€œIt went badly in terms of results. We played seven games, two of which I did not experience. So I played five games myself where I scored four goals. But if you ask me if scoring or winning is more important, I obviously choose to win.โ€
And Fortuna has only done that once so far. In the game with Excelsior on September 17 (1-0). According to Yilmaz, the rough start also has to do with the quality of the opponents. โ€œThe Dutch competition is a strong competition. All clubs are trying to play football here, and thats a worthwhile thing.โ€
For this reason, the 37-year-old Turk decided to commit to ambitious Fortuna for several years. โ€œFor me, the Netherlands is a football institute, just like Brazil. I came here to learn something about Dutch ideas.โ€
In the interview, Yilmaz also mentioned the โ€œliesโ€ that have been spread about him. For example, it would be nonsense that he set the setup, or pays the profit premiums personally. On Sunday, the number sixteen in the Eredivisie will resume the competition. Then the fight with Vitesse is scheduled at 8 p.m.
