Kerimoglu Tugay
Club:Blackburn Rovers
Position:Midfielder

After Hakan Sukur, Kerimoglu Tugay is probably the most influential player in the Turkish team.

He was part of the strong Galatasaray brigade before his talents were noticed by Glasgow Rangers, where he was in and out of the side for two seasons.

Blackburn boss Graeme Souness took Tugay down south where he has enjoyed a fruitful season at the Premiership club.

Tugay is a competent, industrious all-rounder who is solid in defence, where occasionally he is fielded.

But he is equally capable of fulfilling the playmaker role in midfield, or appearing on the left of midfield or as a wing-back.

He began his career with Trabzonspor before joining Gala in 1988 where he quickly made his breakthrough.

He played in Euro 2000 with Turkey, but was sent home in disgrace after throwing a tantrum at the manager when he was substituted during a game.
