Emre Asik

Club: Galatasaray
Position: Defender

An aggressive and pushy defender, Emre has found himself on the wrong side of referees in the past.

But the 28-year-old's temperament has looked far less volatile this season and he should be an invaluable part of Senol Gunes' defence.

He played for a string of Turkish sides, with varied success, before finally finding his niche at Galatasaray for the last two seasons.

He likes to push forward from defence and has been a regular scorer for Gala. He has also picked up two goals for Turkey.
