Here is the 3rd player we introduce to you as a part of the “Video & Stats Talk” series.
Can Korkmaz a born and bred product of Turkish origin. Korkmaz begun his career at Pertevniyal and has only played for 5 other teams outside of Galatasaray. Now in his 3rd stint with Galatasaray his aim is to be a consistent and value-adding player for good.
We put together a number of questions sent forward by our owner Mr. Duran to Can Korkmaz to go over:
During the offseason most of the time I spend time on my body to stay in shape and to get stronger that’s my priority. Then I will work on a couple of moves that can be helpful to me in the future. Generally for that move, I watch personal highlights and try the reflect to my game.
International competitions are different than local ones. Every country has its own style I think so the first thing that I look at is their way of playing their tempo. After that, I look for their weak sides and try to push them to do something they are not comfortable in doing. lastly to me the key point is the player personality. I try my find out and learn more about them if I don’t know them very well by any means.
– Do you use video and stats that are different from what the assistant coaches hand you to give you an edge?
Our staff (at Galatasaray – assuming this is Ömer Uğurata) does a great job with both. It actually depends on the opponent a little bit. Some teams can give you different thoughts every game so I analyze with that in the back of my mind and act accordingly.
Mentality. I try to live that moment again and understand why I did that and with what mindset I was in to learn from it again.
Field goals percentages, minutes and turnovers
To me its, full game footage; because every minute has his own story so I like to watch from wider perspective.

We’d like to thank Can for his time and wish him well for next season!
