Backroom Staff Changes

In addition to Şahin’s appointment, Beşiktaş has also decided on Serdar Topraktepe’s role within the team. Topraktepe, who served as a technical advisor this season, will be assigned to the team under Şahin.

Looking Ahead

With Şahin at the helm and potential changes to the backroom staff, Beşiktaş fans can expect a revamped approach for the upcoming season. The club will be hoping that Şahin’s vision and leadership will usher in a new era of success.
