Mehmet Yiginer wins Ankaragucu elections!
As was expected Mehmet Yiginer was successful in his bid to serve a second term as Ankaragucu president. It was expected that Yiginer would go head to head with former Ankaragucu president Bent Ahlat, however the later decided to withdraw his candidacy late last night.
Unfortunately there was no big announcements of lifting the transfer ban or positive news on the clubs debts. Instead Yiginer spoke of his plans to carry on and continue to try and reduce the clubs huge debts. Yiginer said he would be raising the price of season tickets and that the club would need to make do with the squad they have at their disposal.
The clubs youth team was praised and Yiginer claimed it was one of the best in Turkey. Due to the clubs circumstances new coach Muammer Ozdemir will need to rely on the facility for new players as apposed to the transfer window.
Ankaragucu travel to Kahramanmarasspor on the opening day of the season and will be looking to use upcoming friendlies such as tomorrows match against Giresunspor to get their match fitness back. Selim Teber has rejoined the squad after talk that he would move to Germany. Also returning to the squad is Teoman Erkan and Gokhan Erdogan who both had loan spells in the PTT Lig last season. Bilal Gundogdu also returns from injury and will be a boost to the coaches plans.
More tomorrow night on the friendly with Giresunspor....
