After a couple of weeks of speculation and false reporting, including one strange report that Bulent Korkmaz had signed up - who could have written that one??? - Ersun Yanal has signed a two-year contract to coach Genclerbirligi.
The contract was signed on Friday not at Genclerbirligi's headquarters but at a factory owned by Chairman Ilhan Cavcav.
Yanal was the man who brought great success to the club a few years ago including a great run in the UEFA Cup that saw us defeat Blackburn Rovers, AS Roma, and Sporting Lisbon before going down to eventual winners Valencia.
Having nicked Yanal from Ankaragucu, and thus starting up a couple of years of animosity between the fans of the two clubs which has recently calmed down, Yanal was then nicked from us by the TFF who installed him as national coach before sacking him not long later.
But now we have him back. Quite frankly I'm happy. Fingers crossed we can get him to the end of season bbq.
