Ankaragucu latest news!

The three players above Emre Tasdemir, Gokhan Akkan and Hasan Ayaroglu should have been the core of the Ankaragucu team that saw its way back to the Super Lig. Instead Emre Tasdemir last season signed for Bursaspor and was just recently called up to the Turkish National Team. Today Gokhan Akkan said farewell to the club after signing for Super Lig side Caykur Rizespor in a deal worth 900,000 TL to the club. That leaves Hasan Ayaroglu remaining but it looks like the youngster will also sign for a Super Lig side in the next couple of weeks.

Aytac Oden has already signed for Eskisehirspor a couple of weeks ago as the leaves continue to fall at Ankaragucu. In some positive news Orhan Evci and Metin Ilhan both signed new deals with the club with Orhan turning down moves to the Super Lig.

Gokhan Akkan spoke of his sadness leaving the club, but said that he wanted to see the club receiving money as opposed to leaving next season when his contract runs out on a free transfer. Losing Gokhan is a blow to the club but receiving that kind of money with the player only having a year left on his contract is a good deal for both clubs. Ankaragucu have some talented young Goalkeepers such as Turgut Kirveli, Altay Bayindir, Kaan Ates and Cihan Bal who will all fight it out for the number 1 jersey this coming season.

In other news, as OZ Kanka and John both pointed out today, Former Ankaragucu president Ahmet Gokcek has been appointed to the executive board of the Turkish Federation. I will stop right there before i post something i regret.......

  1. With summer barely started in Ankara and the players back in pre-season training, I'm really looking forward to Hibs taking the Scottish Championship by the scruff of the neck and returning to the SPL as Champions.

    However, I can't say that I'm so optimistic of Ankaragucu's chances of going anywhere this season except another mid-table struggle, or ......... dare I say it ......... going southward into Divvy 3 !! My days of taking optimism pills are in the past and all I have now is dealing with reality !

    As for the appointment of Gokcek to the Board of the TFF, I too will withold my comments to keep the language 'clean' on this site.
