Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

Rumblings and mutterings of discontent from Eski Kanka today !!

Turkey's `favourite` newspaper, Hurriyet, reported today that there is a question mark about the future of our star defender Abdurrahman Dereli.

The question posed was........... is he going to join Galatasaray ???

It surely goes without saying that this is NOT the time to be selling players when the team is on a roll in the League and Cup competitions. As I said before in a recent blog, ANKARAGUCU has the best defensive record in the league and one of the reason's for that is the excellent form of our man Dereli.

I'm hoping it is just rumour-mongering by `agents`. Watch this space for further news if any develops.

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim

    The quote I particularly hated in that article was him saying "who doesn't want to play for Galatasaray"

  2. Well....... I can think of a few people who wouldn't !!!

    Playing footie for ANKARAGUCU in Turkey's FIRST city is the ultimate accolade for any footie player. Isn't it ??!!
