It's only fitting that a club short on history hires a manager that is almost as old as the club itself, with 25-year old unknown manager Ahmet Mustafa being born in 1987, while Denizli formed in 1981. Denizli won promotion from the 4th tier of Turkish football in 2010, and surprisingly stayed up last year. They have the tiniest stadium in the 2. Lig, a 540 capacity all-seater stadium. Mustafa was said to be glad to have the opportunity to manage in this level of Turkish football and has publicly stated ambitions to take the club to the Turkish first division, but it'll be a tough task.
Ahmet Mustafa Announced As New Denizli Manager
Mustafa quickly moved into football management after failing to make an impact as a player himself. The former center midfielder has indicated he'll play a 4-4-2 with an aggressive tackling and pressing style.
