Worldwide known, Brazilian star Roberto Carlos, who had played for Real Madrid for a while and also played for Fenerbahçe for years, said that “I am following Turkish football closely. I was the coach of different teams in Turkey. One day, if there was an offer from Konyasport, I wouldn’t say no.” Regarding this issue, he stated that “in those years when I was playing football and was the coach for different teams, my path crossed with Konyasport from time to time. There were the matches we won and lost against Konyasport. Konyasport had a huge breakout with Aykut Kocaman. For two years in a row they joined UEFA European League and won the Turkish and Super Cup which was a great success. One day, if there was an offer from Konyasport, I would really think about it. I wouldn’t say no. Konyasport is a big and institutional football club. There are Brazilian footballers, too. In the past, I was the coach for Sivassport and Akhisarsport. If there was an offer, I would be the coach of Konyasport, too. Why not? I love Turkey and Turkish football very much. I had the chance to know Turkish football closely. I was both a coach and a footballer. I really had good days in this country. I love the humanity of Turkish people and their approach to football. It has always been a privilege and an honour for me to work in Turkey.”
