Ankaragücü Summer update!

It’s less than a month until the Turkish Super Lig season starts as the fixtures were announced yesterday and Ankaragücü still haven’t played a single pre season game. Some of the players returned to training this week but with no manager in place and elections coming up, the club are again the laughing stock of the Turkish Super Lig.

Murat Agcabag this week declared his plans if he gains control of the club, while its the same old shit from Yiginer whose only plan is to ask for other people to invest money in the club. It’s believed that Yiginer has taken out two loans totalling 8.5 million Euros from the Banks with huge interest rates. The bank will therefor withhold any prize and sponsored money from the club until it’s paid back.

This will then lead to the exact same problems the club has faced over the years with players not paid their salaries. This week the club announced new contracts for Korcan Celikay, Aydin Karabulut, Sedat Agcay, Ilhan Parlak, Mehmet Sak, Zaur Sadaev, ,Ante Kulusic, Alihan Kubalas and Michal Pazdan.

Wilfred Moke has today agreed to stay with Ankaragücü and will be announced later on.

Incredibly all of the players were deemed not good enough to play for the team last season with Aydin, Mehmet and Zaur playing less than 10 starts combined. Michal Pazdan and Ante Kulusic signing new deals is great news for the club as they formed a solid partnership last season, but you have to worry that they will be let down by the club again.

Tito Canteros, Dever Orgill and Stelios Kitsiou could all be set to stay at the club too and we hope to find out their futures in the next week or so. The transfer ban still hasn’t been lifted so there is no news to report on new signings.

Hadi Sacko has signed with newly promoted Denizlispor after a successful loan spell at Ankaragücü last season and Djedje has agreed a 1 year deal with Kayserispor.

Ankaragücü still hope to play at Eryaman Stadium this season but again we have no confirmation after the last request was rejected.

  1. With the latest news that Mehmet Yigner is still the Chairman there is no good news to report.

    A pre-season 'friendly' last week against Altinordu ended 2-2 and there will be another tomorrow against Hatay.

    As far as I can see it is still all doom and gloom with no new faces and still no home stadium. What a mess !!!
