While there’s not a finalized deal yet, Ufuk Sarica is the favorite for the job of the Turkish national team coach.
Turkish media reported today that Sarica has an agreement with the local federation in order to be the heir of Ergin Ataman. However, according to Eurohoops sources while the federation wants Sarica to take on the national team coach role, the two sides have not reach a deal.
After all it’s not even known yet if Sarica will remain on the bench of Besiktas next season. Considering the fact that Ataman’s position in Galatasaray had caused complains from the side of Fenerbahce, it’s possible that Sarica as the new national team coach will have to leave the bench of his club. Recently the president of Besiktas Fikret Orman met with Turkish federation president Hedo Turkoglu and this subject could have been one of the matters they talked about.
