Ankaragucu sign Johannes Hopf!

Johannes Hopf will remain in the Capital as he moves from Genclerbirligi to Ankaragucu on a 3 year contract. The Swedish keeper will join his new team mates at Erzerum training camp and will now fight it out with Korcan Celikay and Altay Bayindir for the number 1 jersey.

The move to sign Hopf has come as a bit of a surprise with both Korcan and Altay highly regarded by the Ankaragucu support. Having watched Hopf play on many occasions for Gencler, I believe Ankaragucu have signed a very good Goalkeeper who performed very well for Gencler after a shakey start.

After spending 3 years at Gencler it’s time for the next chapter in the 31 year olds career as he targets a place in the Sweden national team having been capped back in 2016.

In other news, Ankaragücü face Akhisar tomorrow in their first pre season friendly of the summer, we will have full details and the report tomorrow.


  1. That is a very good signing. Without Hopf, Gencler would have been relegated in the first half of last season.

  2. Good to hear Oz

    I remember you talking him up after many of your match reports
