Roberto Carlos has replaced Mustafa Reşit Akçay as Akhisar manager.

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.

Akhisar president Hüseyin Eryüksel confirmed that they had agreed terms with Carlos on a 1.5 year deal.

“We have agreed terms with Roberto Carlos, he has signed a 1.5 year deal and will arrive in Turkey on Thursday,” Eryüksel said.

Akhisar are currently in 11th place in the Süper Lig on 17 points after 15 games.
