Roberto Carlos was unveiled as the new manager of Akhisar in a signing ceremony held today at the teams training camp in Antalya.

The former World Cup winner signed a 1.5 year deal with Akhisar.

Akhisar president Hüseyin Eryüksel and board members Harun Eryüksel and Zekeriya Güneş were also present at the signing ceremony.

“Roberto Carlos will be in charge for the 2014-15 and 2015-16 seasons,” Eryüksel said.

“Roberto has our full backing, hopefully it works out well, I wish him all the luck and believe he will take the club to new heights.”

The former World Cup winner has experience both playing and coaching in Turkey.

Carlos was appointed manager of Sivasspor on a two-year deal last summer and guided the Yiğidolar to a sixth place finish in his first season.

The former Real Madrid star recently resigned as manager of Sivasspor after a poor start to the season.
