In the mid-nineties and beginning of year 2000, Galatasaray was the team made a lot of noise,in The UEFA compations....Now, Fenerbahce is making statement in the European competitions thanks to Brazilian connection.
After Roberto Carlos signing in the beginning of this season, Fenerbahce is the most talked team in the European competitions, these days.

Fenerbahce will be making its first appearance in the second round of the Champions League on Wednesday when it hosts Sevilla.

Under the Brazilian coach Zico,Fenerbahce won all three group games at home against Inter Milan, PSV Eindhoven and CSKA Moscow, and only lost at Inter. The team's vulnerable defense is offset in attack with Brazilian playmaker Alex de Souza supported by an aggressive midfield.

Fenerbahce president Aziz Yilidrim: "We will be like Chelsea, AC Milan or Real Madrid"

Fenerbahce president Aziz Yilidrim, who just celebratated the 10 years this past week, said He want to make Fenerbahce like Chelsea,AC Milan and Real Madrid, in the next ten years.....

"The next 10 years will be for Fenerbahce, everyone should accept that," he said.

Fener have won all their home Champions League games this season, conceding just one goal in the process.

Sevilla, which has won the UEFA Cup for the last two years, will have to deal with Sukru Saracoglu Stadium and rowdy Fenerbahce fans...I think, 12th man in the stands will make a huge impact on Sevilla....

The snow has been cleared from the Sukr├╝ Saracoglu Stadium pitch.
