Schuster inks the deal with Besiktas!


Bernd Schuster signs the papers that officially makes him the manager of Besiktas.


Bernd Schuster is the official manager of Besiktas team after the German manager signed for the club in front of the press at the Nevzat Demir training grounds.

Besiktas, had recently parted their ways with Turkish manager Mustafa Denizli under grounds of health problems which the 60-year-old was suffering from.

But,many Turkish news sources had alleged that rather than health problems, the successful Turkish manager had been angered by Besiktas not paying the players their money and due to this, his relations deteriorated with chairman Yıldırım Demirören.


However Demirören had blasted and mucked the Turkish press and media earlier in the month when news of Schuster, already signing with Besiktas emerged saying, the people who write this nonsense are fraudulent liars.

fter the official papers were signed, Schuster then went on to answer questions by the Turkish press.

Schuster expressed his excitement in being at Beşiktaş and also spoke of how overwhelmed he was when Beşiktaş fans had gone to the airport for the German manager’s arrival.

Schuster said “I am very happy for being here. I am very happy and excited, so much so that I want to do training today, but due to the circumstances I need to wait a few weeks more.”

Schuster was also asked the controversial question of the “ "The date" Besiktas representatives had first made contact” with him in which the former Real Madrid manager said “we met last week for the first time, and from the day we met, we were in strong dialogs. We have started a strong partnership regarding the players, the performance and our goals for the season.”

Schuster also expressed his delight of Portuguese winger Quaresma transferring to Besiktas saying he was “delighted that Quaresma is part of Besiktas” as he is a very talented player.

TURKISH TURKCELL SUPER LEAGUE TRANSFER MARKET


Bernd Schuster in Istanbul.............

When are we going to stop doing this?

Every time a famous player or coach comes to Turkey all of the teams and their fans do this at the airports!

Don't they have better things to do?
Here is another famous man who is going to coach Besiktas next season and another mob scene at the Istanbul's Ataturk airport!

Did't we see these scenes last season with Giovanni Dos Santos and Frank Rijkaard?

Than, after few weeks, if they lose matches and play bad football,we bash them and call them every name in the book!

This is double standard...............

And, this is what third world countries do....
Turkey is not third world country...

It is absurd to see scenes like this in this modern age.....

This has to stop.....

Watch the mob scene in Istanbul than you decide.....

This is what happens when you have teams run by unprofessional people.....

Besiktas Finally gets Quaresma

Besiktas Finally gets Quaresma


Besiktas has completed the signing of winger Ricardo Quaresma from Inter Milan.
The Turkish side has paid a reported 7.3 million euros ($10.3 million) for the 26-year-old, who becomes Bernd Schuster's first signing since taking charge last week.

Quaresma spent six months on loan at Chelsea before returning to Inter last northern summer but made just 13 appearances in all competitions in a season that was also beset by injury.

The Portugal international has over 30 caps for his country but failed to make the FIFA World Cup squad.

Quaresma arrived at Inter in 2008 after the Serie A outfit paid Porto 18.6million euros ($26.3 million) plus Pele, who was valued at around six million ($8.5 million).

However, the two-time Portuguese player of the year, who still had three years left to run on his contract, had little impact at the San Siro.

Besiktas coach Mustafa Denizli and Besiktas president Yildirim Demiroren held a press conference on Friday in Istanbul, Turkey

At the press conference Besiktas President Yildirim Demiroren took the podium first and said , what ever writing about Mustaf Denizli and Besiktas team as far as getting Schuster is not truth. He went on to say that Mustaf Denizli is leaving us because of his health issues,all others are not truth"


After, the Turkish legend as a player, now as a coach, the man who coached Istanbul's big three and won two cups with Besiktas in the last season , Mustafa Denizli, took the stage.

He thanked to Besiktas team officials and the Besiktas fans....

He said he is leaving his childhood love team , due to his current health issues ..

He said, he wanted rest and be productive to Turkish football and Besiktas after he gets better...



He also said what ever said until now in the Turkish media was not truth ...

So, now Mustafa Denizli gone who will be the next coach ofi Besiktas...

Will it be Turkish coach or foreign coach?

If you ask me, it should be Turkish coach...

There are only three Turkish team, who has foreign coaches, in the Turkish Turkcell Super League...

GALATASARAY.... GENCLERBIRLIGI AND FENERBAHCE

Recently ....Gaziantepspor hired Tolunay Kafkas....the new team of the Turkish Super League Bucaspor hired Bulent Uygun and Ankaragucu went with Turkish coach too...

So, who will that Turkish coach, be?

Well, we cant forget, Rasim Kara.... Samet Aybaba... and Giray Bulak...

These three coaches, will be helpful to Besiktas, in my opinion.

And they have the experience that Besiktas needs....
