Okan Buruk appointed Galatasaray coach

Ex-Turkey midfielder Okan Buruk has been appointed coach of his former club Galatasaray on a two-year deal, the Istanbul side announced on Thursday.

After the departure of Fatih Terim in January Spaniard Domenec Torrent, a former assistant to Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola, was unable to improve the team’s results.

The club slumped to 13th in the league, an historic low for the record 22-time Turkish league champions.

Buruk, a 48-year-old was capped 56 times for Turkey and played for the club for 12 seasons, winning the UEFA Cup with them in 2000.

“Welcome home!” Galatasaray said in a statement.

As a coach Buruk led Istanbul Basaksehir to their first ever Turkish league title in 2020.
