''Nuri! Nuri!'' shouted the crowd in the youth stadium after the final whistle. The 800 BVB fans in attendance greeted the 33-year-old Antalyaspor coach with waves and cheers. 

Before the match, the 2011 Bundesliga winner met numerous other BVB legends, chatted with Edin Terzic and talked to the members of the first team who were not in action today. During the match, Sahin was an enthusiastic presence on the sidelines, energetically giving his team instructions throughout. For his side, who he has been coaching since October 2021, the friendly marked the end of an intense training camp. "For us it was important that the boys could test themselves against such strong opposition. We had a lot of fun," Sahin said after the match.

Then the 2017 DFB-Pokal winner expressed his happiness: "It's nice to come home again! I saw a lot of familiar faces from the past, which felt good. We also had a game - everything was perfect."
