Mustafa Kaplan resigns!
The problems at Ankaragucu continued yesterday as Mustafa Kaplan and his backroom staff resigned from the club. His resignation follows the clubs decision to sell Mehmet Erdem to Goztepe for a feeble 150,000 TL and Serhat Gulpinar who has left the club as he looks to start his coaching career. Its also expected that Gokhan Akkan and Umut Nayir will leave the club next week after talks with Eskisehirspor and Karabukspor. Levent Kale is also a target for Goztepe.
Mustafa Kaplan only took over the club 3 months ago following the dismissal of Muammer Ozdemir who hadn't lost a game under his reign. The club claimed they had to accept the offer for Mehmet Erdem in order to pay outstanding debts to former player Michael Klukowski otherwise they would face a 6 point deduction from Fifa.
It is almost certain now that Ankaragucu will cease to exist, with Melih Gokcek getting his way and changing the name of Osmanlispor to Ankaragucu A.S. How this has ever even got to this stage is shame on the Turkish Government and shame on Turkish Football.
