Taken from Wednesday's Hurriyet.

G.Saray, Mondragon sorununu çözemezse, kaleyi emanet etmeyi istediði Kingston’a Türk lisansý çýkarýyor. Ganalý kaleci, eski baþkan Faruk Süren'in adýný, Ergun Gürsoy'un da soyadýný alacak.

Galatasaray kaleci krizi nedeniyle harekete geçti. Mondragon için Metz'in 35 milyon Fransýz frangý istemesi üzerine sarý kýrmýzýlý yöneticiler arayýþ içine girdi. Ýlk olarak gündeme gelen isim ise Antalyaspor'da kiralýk olarak oynayan Gana'lý kaleci Kingston oldu. Siyahi kaleci ile bir görüþme yapan yöneticiler, ‘‘Kendini hazýr tut’’ dediler.

Kingston, 22 Eylül'de Türk lisansýný alacak ve bu lisansta Gana'lý kalecinin adý Faruk Gürsoy olacak. Kingston'nun kendisini G.Saray'a transfer eden ve çok sevdiði eski baþkan Faruk Süren'in adýný, Ergun Gürsoy'un da soyadýný alacaðý belirtildi. Kingston, ‘‘Yýllardýr G.Saray kalesine geçeceðim günü bekliyorum. Güvenenleri mahçup etmeyeceðim’’ dedi.


Ýlk olarak Mondragon'u elinde tutmaya çalýþacak olan yönetim, bir anlaþmazlýk halinde zor durumda kalmamak için Kingston'a haber gönderdi. Lucescu'nun da Kingston için olumlu rapor verdiði öðrenildi. G.Saray, kaleci sorununu sezon sonuna kadar çözemezse, yeni sezon kampýna Kingston, Kerem ve Mehmet üçlüsüyle baþlayacak.


Basically for those that don't speak Turkish, it about Ghanian keeper Kingston becoming a Turkish national and replacing Mondragon (if a deal isn't agreed).

Kingston is a very talented young GK but he is still very young(23-24) and doesn't have much experience in Super league except for this season and has no CL experience. He has been doing really well with Antalyaspor this season. The good thing is at least we don't have to worry about having aa foreign GK.

Kingston, the Ghanian national keeper, started his career at Accra Great Olympics before moving to Turkey at a very young age, joining Galatasaray's youth team.

After having a few successful games with them, he progressed to the first team squad but remained mostly on the bench. He was loaned to Sakaryaspor in 1998-99 and when they were relegated, his excellent performances earned him a spell at Goztepe.

He was Ghana's first choice keeper in the 2000 African Nation's Cup.

Sent on loan to Antalyaspor from Galatasaray in January 2002.

I agree Kingston is a very good keeper. Every game I have seen him in, he has impressed me. And remember these teams don't have Gala's defence, so behind players like Bulent, Emre, etc, he may show even more quality.

I do like Mondragon a lot, but his performances in the CL, won't have helped us with his cost.
