Noting that they have never raised material concerns about service to the city, Mayor Kocaoglu said:
“It is one thing to be against the construction of the stadium there, to say the wrong thing after the decision is made, it is another thing to give the place, not negotiate it, not turn it into money.
We took our 1400 m² place in the most precious place of Izmir and gave it gladly. We said 'Göztepe Stadium should be built'. Likewise, we said that we are giving our 4-acre place in Alsancak Stadium, in the most precious region of Izmir, for the construction of the stadium without any money. Before the allocation of the land, we wanted to see the project of Alsancak Stadium. However, we received the reply that the project drawing will be made after the allocation. We said, let's remove this decision from the parliament in January, make the allocation, draw the projects. In other words, let the work be done, İzmir should not be left without stats.
Silent two new stat
