What is the record for the number of managers a team has had in a season? I have no idea but Genclerbirligi must be going for the record after it was announced today that Reinhard Stumpf has been sacked.
So this year we have had:
Ersun Yanal, who resigned within a day or two after signing on after the club sold Draminu.
Fuat Capa, sacked after six matches.
Reinhard Stumpf, sacked after four matches.
Genclerbirligi are in dire straights at the moment, just one point away from the relegation zone. On paper we have a good team but something is just not right.
News reports today have linked Bulent Korkmaz, Riza Calimbay, Flying Dutchman Kanka Carlo and Erdogan Arica to the vacant position.
Whoever we end up getting I hope it is for longer than just a couple of weeks.
It certainly is difficult to keep the enthusiasm going ...
EDIT (Tuesday morning): As Fenerfan pointed out in the comments section of this post Bulent Korkmaz has made an "in principle" deal to take over the position. Reports say Flying Dutchman Kanka Carlo would have got the job if he hadn't sent in his CV using the Word 2007 file extension .docx which Gencler's Windows 95 computers couldn't open.
