Alex Wins Turkcell Super Lig Scoring Title

Despite being held scoreless against Ankaragucu, Fenerbahce star Alex de Souza claimed the Turkcell Super Lig scoring title for the season, finishing one goal ahead of Galatasaray's Umit Karan. The title is Alex's first, and the first for Fenerbahce since the 1994-1995 season.
Alex scored 19 goals on the season and despite this being the lowest winning total in 8 years, it was enough to stay ahead of the competition. He becomes the third foreign-born player to win the award, and the first for Fenerbahce.
Galatasaray's Karan was trailing by only a goal going into the final weekend. He was confident about his chances of surpassing Alex when speaking to the media earlier in the week, but Galatasaray was held scoreless in a 2-0 season-ending defeat on Saturday.
Only time will tell if Alex's last goal on the season was also his last in the yellow and navy blue stripes.

Belated congratulations from The Round Ball in Ankara to Fenerbahce for winning The Super League Trophy this season.

We can only hope that Fener, Besiktas, CimBom and Erciyes produce the goods in YooRo footie next season to start building points for Turkish teams.

Speaking for all ANKARAGUCU supporters..... we have not given up hope of returning to the YooRo scene in the not too distant future.

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim in Ankara (Turkey's First City)
