Speaking to the Galatasaray website Onyekuru whose last scored a hattrick against Ankaragucu stated that his team needs to continue with their winning streak if they are to win the league.
He said “If I score a goal, I'm not throwing it away, I'm throwing with the help of my teammates. It is impossible for me to fight myself or to score goals, so I thank them.
"Today we gave our team a hundred percent, a game we had to win. We are happy to win, we want to continue by winning.
“Of course, away matches are more difficult than home matches. But we shouldn't think so. Today's game logic, we want to reflect this game to the next match by giving us a hundred percent. We have an away game ahead of us, we need to continue by winning.”
