Future of Ankaragucu still uncertain !
New Ankaragucu president Bent Ahlat spoke today about the future of the club and the obstacles they look to overcome. It is now uncertain weather the club will play at the 19 Mayis stadium this season due to debts to the company the stadium is rented from. The club share the rent with Genclerbirligi and will now speak with Ilhan Cavcav to see if he can help the club which will allow them to play their football at the 19 Mayis stadium.
Ahlat also spoke today saying the club are still in discussions with the Turkish FA to lift the transfer ban. 9 Million is needed to lift the ban but the club are hoping to strike a deal which will allow them to pay this back over a period of time. He also claimed their are a number of players waiting to sign for the club if the ban is lifted.
The club have now opened membership to the fans at a cost of 1000 Turkish Lira. Erdal Sanli spoke of this on his twitter account saying that this is a scam and has his doubts over the new president. Melih Gokcek also claimed on twitter that he will change the name of Ankaraspor to Ankaragucu A.S next season when they play in the Super Lig, A decision that would split the Ankaragucu support.
