Turkish team Besiktas signs with Schuster as new coach

Turkish first division soccer club Besiktas has signed a two-year contract with German coach Bernd Schuster as its new coach.

Schuster expressed his excitement with being a member of the Besiktas at the signing ceremony in Istanbul on Wednesday.

"I am very happy for being here. I am very happy and excited, so much so that I want to do training today, but due to the circumstances I need to wait a few weeks more," he said.

Schuster also expressed his delight of Portuguese winger Quaresma transferring to Besiktas.

Schuster, who replaces Mustafa Denizli, will be paid 2.6 million euro a year. Denizli quit last week due to health problems.

Meanwhile, Portuguese winger Ricardo Quaresma is expected to come to Istanbul on Friday to sign with Besiktas. He will sign officials on Saturday. (UK-CE)
