Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
As Bellshill Kanka Nadeem mentioned in his comments yesterday, Ankaragucu has signed Michal Zewlakow from Olympiakos.
There was a big spread in The Hurriyet this morning about it and the customary photo session with Zewlakow decked out in an Ankaragucu top.
I believe this is a great signing for Ankaragucu. He is just the man to tighten up the defence which was a wee bit leaky in the latter part of last season.
He is a central defender (or stopper !!) and he comes with an impressive CV. The fact that he is 34 years old should be neither here nor there !
He began his career in Warsaw before moving to Belgium where he played for Beveren and Anderlecht. He won two league titles with Anderlecht.
He then joined Olympiakos and won three league titles and two Greek Cups with them.
He has represented Poland 95 times and recently as Captain of the National side.
So, pretty impressive stuff I would say. Look forward to seeing him in action !
There may be further good news in the coming days. It was also reported this morning that Ankaragucu has now officially bought Vittek's contract from Lille, and if all goes well, he could be playing for Ankaragucu again next season. Fingers crossed on that happening !
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
