Fatih Akyel



Fatih Akyel
Highly rated by the national coach and thought to have a bright future, he is already a regular on the right side of defence.

One of the players of the season in Turkey in the last campaign, helping Gala to the double.

Only made his full Galatasaray debut at the start of the 1997/98 campaign and within days earned his first international cap, coming on as a 63rd minute substitute in the 6-4 defeat of Wales in Istanbul.

This is only his third season in the Gala first team but he has already won three Championships and the Cup.

With his great pace and liking to get forward, he has started 11 of the last 13 Turkish games since his first appearance.

Came up through the youth ranks at Gala, but was loaned out to lower League Bakyrkoyspor before returning to begin his career proper in spectacular style.
