Could Tuncay Be Headed Back to Turkiye?

Could Tuncay Be Headed Back to Turkiye?
By Nathan L. Redd

Published reports out of England indicate that the honeymoon may be over for Tuncay Sanli and Middlesbrough. However, Middlesbrough boss Gareth Southgate says there is no truth to the rumors. Southgate told Sky Sports "It's nonsense, so I am not prepared to be distracted from our preparations for Saturday's game.

"I actually saw these supposed quotes from Tuncay a couple of weeks ago and asked him about them. There is no truth to them" he told Sky Sports. "He is committed to the challenge. His reaction to the game last Saturday certainly didn't suggest to me someone that wasn't 100 percent committed to the club and what we are trying to do. He has been a substitute for some of our early games, but there is every chance he will be playing against Sunderland on Saturday. The truth is that we have been delighted with him and I am sure he will be a big success over here."

The former Fenerbahce star is expected to start in Saturday's game, replacing the injured Jeremie Aliadiere.
