Ertuğrul Sağlam and Aykut Kocaman are the only other coaches to have achieved the same feat.

Sağlam won the league with Beşiktaş as a player and also as a coach with Bursaspor. Kocaman lifted the title with Fenerbahçe as a player and later as head coach of the Yellow Canaries.

Galatasaray won the league for a record 20th time on Monday 27 May after Fenerbahçe failed to beat Başakşehir at the Fatih Terim stadium.

The heated game ended in a 2-2 draw and the Yellow Canaries were shown four yellow cards.

Hamzaoğlu replaced former Italian national team manager Cesare Prandelli as Galatasaray head coach in November under current president Duygun Yarsuvat.
