Şenol Güneş appointed Turkey mentor
The ex-coach of Besiktas replaced Mircea Lucescu.
The Football Federation of Turkey announced the appointment of Şenol Güneş as head coach of the Turkey national team on its official website.
The 66-year-old specialist became the successor of Mircea Lucescu, who left this position about two weeks ago.
Güneş moved to the national team coaching position from Besiktas, where the specialist had worked since 2015.
It is the second arrival of the specialist to the position of the Turkey national team mentor. Güneş worked with the team from 2000 to 2004.
During that time, the Turks became the bronze medalists of the 2002 World Cup, as well as the bronze medalists of the 2003 Confederations Cup.
