Bulak rewarded by Denizlispor

Denizlispor have rewarded coach Giray Bulak for a successful campaign by handing him a new two-year deal.
Denizlispor have rewarded coach Giray Bulak for a successful campaign by handing him a new two-year deal.

Fifth-place finish
Bulak was out of contract at the end of the month, but having led his side to fifth position in the Turkish Superleague - one place above Galatasaray SK - in his first full season in charge, the club have moved to retain the man they appointed in April 2003.

'I feel at home'
"I have not needed much persuasion to sign the contract because I feel at home here," Bulak said. "I was able to work in peace here, which can be counted as the biggest factor in my decision to stay. I will be looking forward to achieving more success in the coming seasons."

Long-term plans
The coach said he had decided which players he wanted to keep on, and also suggested that he intended to make six summer signings. However, the 46-year-old also has longer-term plans. He said: "Infrastructure and youth development are important. We should be ready for club licensing criteria. We have to utilise our scouting system and look for consistent success instead of sporadic achievement."
