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

The former Akhisar manager signed a one-year deal worth $500,000 making him one of the lowest paid members in the squad and one of the lowest paid managers in the league.

Hamzaoğlu won the league title as a player for Galatasaray and led the Istanbul giants to the championship as a manger in his debut season.

Ertuğrul Sağlam and Aykut Kocaman are the only other Turkish managers to have achieved the same feat in the league.

The Lions boss also guided Galatasaray to their 16th Turkish Cup title – the Istanbul giants sixth double.

Galatasaray won the league title for the 20th time under Hamzaoğlu and will become the first Turkish side to wear the fourth star next season.
