Hikmet Karaman is being strongly linked as the next manager of Galatasaray if the club part ways with Cesare Prandelli.

The Lions are expected to sack Prandelli today and Karaman is being tipped to takeover.


Karaman recently revealed that he believes he would do a better job than Prandelli.

“If there was a 14 point gap then you could say Galatasaray don’t have a chance in the league,” Karaman said.

“But there is still a long way to go, I would give this team wings if they put me in charge and we would be on course to win the fourth star.”

Galatasaray are currently third in the Süper Lig, just one point behind league leaders Beşiktaş and Fenerbahçe.

Karaman has coached 14 clubs in Turkey and never won the Süper Lig.

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