Ozer Hurmaci

Ozer Hurmaci, born on the 20th of November 1986 in Kassel, Germany, is currently a regular on the U21 Turkish National Team, and considered a future talent on the Ankaraspor squad.

Özer started off his footballing career in his home town with amateur side Hermania Kassel. He then later had stints with Turkgucu Kassel and Baunatal. At the age of 17, he played under the Ankaraspor youth team in the 2004-2005 season, his apparent performances later earned him 3.5 year deal in January. The season after he was loaned over to Keçiörengücü for the 2005-2006 campaign. He played 29 games for the "Purple Violets" and scored against Akseki Aroma Genclik, Altinordu, and Ispartaspor, tallying his goal count to 3 in the season capping off a successful stint under the Turkish 3. Lig outfit. At the end of his loan, Ankaraspor officials saw they had a potential star in their hands and decided to keep him on the senior squad. Ozer brokethrough the ranks in the 2007-2008 season, impressing the big 3 in Turkey and having almost completed a transfer to Galatasaray in last seasons summer transfer window. However, negotiations broke down and he was left to stay in Ankara for another season signing an extension with the Leopards untill 2011.

Holding both Turkish and German citizenships, Ozer was free for both nations to be selected into their youth national teams. Eventually he was called up to the U20 Turkish National Team squad in 2005. After being capped twice, U21 manager Hami Mandirali promoted Ozer to the U21 sqaud where he has been capped 21 times, notching his lone goal against Armenia in a qualifier.

Ozer is notable for his dribbling, and vision on the pitch. Quick on the ball and playable to both wings on the pitch, he is efficient in using both feet very well and it can be suggested that his playing style is similar to that of Ricardo Quaresma.

In 2009, Ozer went through an injury that has ruled him out of play for approximately a month, he had broken a bone in his foot during a match against city rivals Genclerbirligi.
