I know I'm speaking without even seeing this player perform, but I'm so confident with Ersun Yanal's scouting ability that I have no doubt in my mind that this is a good player, and if not that would bring Ersun's selection ratio to 9/10.
Ersun Yanal's ability to scout is nothing less then WORLD CLASS. If any of the major clubs in the world had any idea of his gift of buying amazing players for cheap prices he would be a scout for them in a heart beat.
Trabzon really is headed in the right path, the board brought Ersun on board, and left the entire team in his hands and this is the result. I would love for Trabzon to win the league (only if Fenerbahce didn't have a chance). Yanal has been unlucky through out his career, the stupid TFF fired him for absolutely no reason. And guys don't start the terim versus Yanal argument with me. I do agree that terim is more suited to be the national team coach so please don't start with me. Yanal seems to have a mentality that is so professional, the way he goes about his business or job makes it seem like he's not even from Turkiye. His level of professionalism with his amazing understanding of this sport equip him to be a world class scout. I think he's an awesome coach too, but it's deff. not his strongest asset.
Anyways, I really admire this guy...
