Hikmet Karaman has dismissed reports linking him with the Galatasaray managerial job.

Karaman who recently managed Erciyesspor and Bursaspor, stated that he has not held talks with the Istanbul club.

“There has been no offer, so I cannot comment on the speculation in the media,” Karaman said.


“Galatasaray have a very important match tomorrow. It is wrong to talk about these things before a critical game like this.”

Karaman has been closely linked with Galatasaray job in recent days with Cesare Prandelli nearing the exit door following a string of heavy defeats.

The 55-year-old manager was offered the Director of Football role during the summer.

Karaman has managed 15 different teams in the Turkish Super League since 1998.
