Hasan Sas

Club: Galatasaray
Position: Forward

Hasan Sas is in good form going into the World Cup in Turkey.

In a recent warm-up match Hasan scored and earned a penalty against a Hong Kong XI.

He began his professional career at Ankaragücü in 1995, where he and then earned a move to Galatasaray in 1998.

Unfortunately for the player, he tested positive for a banned substance and was suspended from football for six months.

That served as a major kick up the backside for Hasan, who worked hard to regain his place in the Galatasaray first team.

In the 2000/01 Champions League campaign he scored against the likes of AC Milan and Real Madrid, to establish his credentials as one of the best strikers of the Turkey team.
