Bulent Korkmaz

Club: Galatasaray
Position: Defender

Korkmaz is a product of Galatasaray's youth policy, coming through the ranks for well over a decade to become one of the most capped players in the club's history.

He is also a veteran of the national set-up and, although he lacks pace, his domestic and European experience with Gala should help players around him.

The 33-year-old has picked up a total of six league titles and four cups with the club and has come up against some of the world's best strikers in the Champions League.

Showed against Liverpool and Michael Owen that he can be a good man marker.
