Halil Altintop Sees Potential Fenerbahce Future

Halil Altintop Sees Potential Fenerbahce Future
By Nathan L. Redd

Two of Turkiye's best players playing abroad include brothers Halil and Hamit Altintop, who both call Germany their home. Hamit, at Bayern Munich and Halil, at Schalke 04, have been rumored to be coming back to Turkiye in the past. Recently Halil told Turkish newspaper Zaman that while he has no plans to return to Turkiye anytime soon, both he and his brother would like to play in the Turkcell Super Lig in the future, and Fenerbahce would be a welcome destination for both.

Halil told Zaman "I’m happy to be in Germany and play there. Currently, I’m not thinking about returning to Turkiye. Although they offered me very nice terms, I did not accept any offer. Building a good career is my first and foremost priority. But when the time comes in the future, I, with my brother Hamit, would like to play in Turkiye."

The Zaman interview went on to quote Halil Altintop as saying Fenerbahce had made an offer for him in the past. He stated that Fenerbahce is considered a top European club outside of Turkiye, and he felt that the best European players would consider offers to play in Kadikoy.
