Timur Ozgoz in popular demand !

One of the few success stories of this season for Ankaragucu, has been the performances of German born forward Timur Ozgoz. With 13 goals and 9 assists the hard working forward has caught the eye of clubs from both Germany and Turkey. Its believed Kayseri Erciyesspor, Manisaspor, Istanbul BBS, FC Bochum, FC Paderborn, Goztepe and Antalyaspor are all amongst the admirers.

I spoke to Timur today and he will head home to Berlin for a holiday at the end of the current season to visit family. Its unlikley that he will sign for a German club with his preference to stay in Turkey. He said he will also stay in touch with Ankaragucu as he has not decided what he is going to do.

It seems like a long time ago that Timur scored on his debut at Kayseri Erciyesspor, he has went on to become a fans favourite with his hard working attitude on and off the pitch. A few months ago when he was given his win bonus, he donated it all to kids with special needs. Timur is very popular with his team mates and has even wore the captains armband this season.

Timur is at an age where he needs to be playing at the highest level possible and I'm sure every Ankaragucu fan will wish him all the best no matter where he plays. It would be great to see Timur wear the Ankaragucu jersey next season from a selfish point of view, but if he has offers from the Super Lig it will be difficult for Ankaragucu to keep hold of him.

Mustafa Kaplan also paid tribute to Timur today speaking about his skill, goals and overall knowledge of the game. We will keep you updated with any future developments !


  1. Thanks for the update Nadeem ! Timur has been fantastic He really caught me eye when he donated his win bonus to the struggling family. As a player he has been fantastic for us ! I hope where ever he goes he is a starter, It would hurt to see him go to the super lig and simply be "good back up" on the bench !

  2. Well said both of you. Warming the bench is what happened to a few of the players who left Ankaragucu over the years. Serhan and Gokhan to name but two.

    It goes without saying that we all wish Timur a successful future and our thanks for his efforts on behalf of us long suffering fans of Ankaragucu.

  3. If we lose Timur then we must remove the transfer ban as we dont have another striker who can score double figures
