With a place in the last eight of the Champions League at stake, Galatasaray rose to the occasion via Umut Bulut's 95th minute strike to break the hearts of Schalke fans as Terim's men triumphed 4-3 on aggregate.
The victory marked Galatasaray's first foray into the quarter-finals of the competition since 2001 and there was no one prouder of the feat than the club's manager.
"Now we're among the best eight teams in Europe. All Turkey and Galatasaray fans should enjoy this success," Terim pointed out to uefa.com
"I would like to thank all the fans for making sacrifices to come to Germany and watch us."
Terim was also grateful to his squad for proving that they deserved to be a part of Europe's elite.
"I want to congratulate all my players – I will hug and kiss them all," he shared.
"Players sometimes known for their limited movement and tackling ability were transformed in this game and fought for the team on the pitch. We played like an excellent European team in the first half."
