Fatih Terim 4-1-4-1 - FM21 Tactic - Possession and Great Defence

The Man - Fatih Terim

Believe it or not. This is currently Fatih Terim's fourth term at Galatasaray. In December 2017, the ex-Galatasary player replaced Igor Tudor as manager but the contract was only until the end of the 2018-19 season. With the 18 games left remaining, they produce some great results, winning 14 games, drawing once, and losing 3. To no surprise, he was then offered a two-year extension, an interesting one as no wages were agreed with the club president the one deciding the wages. In May 2019, Galatasaray became the champions of the 2018–19 Süper Lig season. This was now his 8th league title in Turkey and to celebrate, in front of fans (52,000) Fatih Terim signed another contract and also celebrated his 45th anniversary with the club in 2019. At the time of writing this, Galatasaray are currently sitting 1st with Faith Terim possibly winning 3 league titles in 4 seasons, so let's look at tactical methods
