Akhisar manager Roberto Carlos revealed that he will be supporting Turkey against Netherlands on 28 March.
“Turkey is going to have a tough game but I believe they can do it and they need to,” Carlos told Eurosport TR.
“The Turks have themselves another fan, I will be supporting Turkey.”
The Netherlands are currently third in Euro 2016 qualification Group A with six points from four games, while Turkey sit fourth with four points after four games.
Netherlands national team manager Guus Hiddink knows Turkey well having coach the Crescent-Stars between 2010-12.
The Netherlands will be without Bayern Munich star Arjen Robin and Manchester United striker Robin van Persie due to injury. Aston Villa defender Ron Vlaar has also been ruled out with injury.
Akhisar are currently managed by former Sivasspor manager Roberto Carlos.
Carlos was appointed manager of Sivasspor on a two-year deal last summer, guiding the Süper Lig outfit to a sixth place finish in his first league campaign but struggled in his second season in charge and later resigned.
