A foreign coach for Ankaragucu?

With Sir Eski Kanka in the wilds of Scotland and therefore out of contact with the civilised world I thought I had better give the latest update on Ankaragucu.

I just read on the Milliyet website that Ankaragucu have come to an agreement with German Pierre Littbarski to manage the team next season.

This is so far just an agreement in principle so nothing is certain but a move by the former German national player would be great for Ankaragucu, especially considering he already has one prestigious title to his name - he coached Sydney FC to the title of the Australian A-League earlier this year as we reported here.

Littbarski left Sydney at the end of the season after failing to agree on a new salary.

Sir Eski Kanka? Are you out there? Any chance of sending a carrier pigeon across Hadrian's Wall with your thoughts?

EDIT 6 July 06: Littbarski not coming, intstead we have Vlado Bozinoski. Small story here


  1. Thanks for keeping me updated Oz Kanka.

    The subject of a coach for Ankaragucu is a sore point. Quite
    honestly I don't care what nationality the coach is just as long as he stays-put for a few years for the sake of continuity.
    Let's see what transpires concerning the German gentleman.

    The wedding of the Millennium was a great success and I hope to be able to send you a photo of my `sexy knees` soon !!!

    All the best from Eski Kanka in The Home of the Brave.
