I've noticed that there were several Turkish players who moved to Serie A clubs in the 50s and 60s. Does anyone have any information, videos, pictures etc about these players and their time in the Italian league?

The ones I'm looking for:
Can Bartu
Code:
1961–1962	Fiorentina	14	(5)
1962–1963	Venezia	30	(11)
1963–1964	Fiorentina	10	(3)
1964–1967	Lazio	        46	(11)
Sukru Gulesin
Code:
1950-1951	Palermo	28	(13)
1951-1952	Lazio	        29	(16)
1952-1953	Palermo	22	(7)
Lefter Kucukandonyadis
Code:
1951–1952	ACF Fiorentina	30	(4)
Metin Oktay
Code:
1961–1962	Palermo	12	(3)
Thanks for any help. It's greatly appreciated :thumbsup:

Here's some pictures and clippings of Can Bartu while at Lazio. It's unlikely that you'll find videos. If you need translations, let me know. Or better yet, I just notice Toni already offered. ;) Seems like an interesting player, very on and off but skillful. They called him the Sivori of Istanbul. He was from a rich family and basically played football (and basketball) as a hobby...

Here's quite a lot of info and pictures about Sukrü Gulesin and Lazio. He was a huge guy for that time, over 190cm and 100kg. It is said he has scored the most goals from corner kicks of any player ever, 32 goals in 226 games.
