AHMET FURKAN CAN: WE TRUST HIM VERY MUCH
Stating that our young player has seven years of seniority in Altınordu, our ALFA Executive Director Ahmet Furkan Can said, "Onuralp is an player who lives both on and off the field. He is our son. Today he stepped into professionalism. The whole process for him will start from now on. He will continue in the same way and will transfer to our A-Team and then to Europe, our biggest desire. We trust and believe in him very much."
ALFA Goalkeeping Head Coach Hüseyin Yenikaya, who has been working with Onuralp Çevikkan for many years, reminded that our young player was nine years old when he came to Altınordu and said, "His talents were already evident from that day. He would also obviously be a social kid with a positive smile. He has had a successful process so far. Hopefully, he will reach good places and go to Europe, which is our goal. What excites me the most is to see a young boy who came as a small sprout grows in our hands. God bless his path, and I wish him a successful football life."
