Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
You will recall that I mentioned the problem between Serkan Kirintil and the fans (Gecikondu in particular !) in my match report of the Ankaragucu v Genclerbirligi match a few days ago.
Following on from that, there was a meeting between Hikmet Karaman, the players and the fans yesterday at the Training Ground in Bestepe.
Despite pleas from Hikmet Bey, Captain Ceyhun and the players, it appears that forgiveness is not an option, even in the knowledge that the transfer of Serkan to Ankaraspor in January is not yet a 'done-deal'.
So, this still presents Hikmet Bey with a headache. What to do with the goalkeeper position on Saturday in Diyabakir, and more importantly, for the home match on the 15th of August against Manisa.
Obviously we can't influence the outcome on this Blog, but for what it's worth, I believe we have to be sensible about this and put personal feelings aside.
Serkan is a professional goalkeeper and has been a great servant for the Club. So, as long as Hikmet Bey chooses to select him for the team we should respect that decision and support the TEAM !
More on this subject as it unfolds.
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
