Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
Further to yesterday's news concerning Vittek, it was reported in The Hurriyet this morning that he was misquoted in the German Press.
Apparently, a senior member of the Ankaragucu Committee phoned Vittek and he disputed that he had said that Turkish football was not for him and he wanted to join a Bundeslig Club.
Either this is true, or ......... he is back-tracking ! As Dublin Neil said in his comments in the previous post ......... he would not want to suffer the wrath of Gecikondu or Anti-X if he didn't find a Club and had to return to Ankaragucu with 'his tail between his legs' !!!
Anyway, we shall know for sure on the 21st of July if he shows up in Holland to join the team for their Summer Camp !
The situation concerning Giovanni and Rothen is still ongoing. Both players have received offers from Ankaragucu and we await their decision in the next day or so.
The picture is clearer concerning Club Captain Hurriyet, Ucar and Guven. There was a photo-call yesterday which was shown in The Hurriyet this morning.
Club Captain Hurriyet has signed for 5 years, Ucar for 4 years and Guven for 3 years.
Watch this space for more.
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
