Australian colonisation of Genclerbirligi continues

Shares in Anadolu Efes Biracilik Ve Malt Sanayii A.S. were up on Wednesday as news hit the markets that another Australian was headed for Genclerbirligi.
Klassspor.com reported that Genclerbirligi had signed Central Coast Mariners midfielder Mile Jedinak continuing the Australian take-over of the Anatolian club which now has three Aussie players on the books.
Investigative reporting from "The round ball in Ankara" discovered that Jedinak is 24 years-old and made his debut for Australia earlier this year in a friendly match against Singapore, the same match at which Aussie Bruce made his Aussie debut.
Klassspor.com also did their own investigative reporting, saying that due to Jedinak's performances for Central Coast, the fans call him "God". Call it a coincidence if you want, but that happens to be exactly what Wikipedia says about the bloke.
"The round ball in Ankara" however prefers to believe that Klasspor.com actually rang random Central Coast phone numbers to find out what the locals think of him.
Klasspor.com: "Do you think Jedinak will be good for Genclerbirligi?"
Random Central Coast person: "God knows?"
Klasspor.com editors: "Let's just selectively quote that sentence."
Welcome to Ankara Mile!
