Muammer Ozdemir happy with performance !
Ankaragucu coach Muammer Ozdemir was happy with the way his team performed in the 0-0 draw with Hatayspor at home last night. Now if i hadn't watched the highlights i would have maybe thought Damon and Jim were being a bit harsh on the team. However they are both usually spot on and from what i saw of the match we were rubbish.
The coach spoke of the game saying we only have 4 experienced players in Serhat Gulpinar, Selim Teber, Levent Kale and Mehmet Erdem. That part of course is true. Ozdemir believed the team played at a high tempo and had 8 good chances to win the game. Of course he forgot to mention the chances Hatayspor had.
The good news is that Levent is getting closer to match fitness which will be a massive boost to the team, whilst Hasan Ayaroglu is back in training after a hernia operation. Hasan is an interesting player, when he first broke onto the scene big things were expected of him. Injuries have held him back, but if he can get back to full fitness and play consistently then he could fill the void left by Emre Tasdemir.
Ankaragucu host Golcukspor on Wednesday at the 19 Mayis Stadium. We will have more details on that later. .
