Where is Tugay now?

Tugay, the Blackburn Rovers legend, idolised by the fans retired from playing in 2009 in a game against West Bromwich Albion to rapturous applause from 29,000 fans from both teams. 

Upon retiring Tugay briefly took on a coaching role at Manchester City under Mark Hughes before returning to his native Turkey to take on the role of co-ordinator for the Galatasaray youth academy.

In 2013 Tugay was appointed assistant manager at Galatasaray working alongside manager Roberto Mancini.

Despite winning the Turkish Cup and finishing second in the league they were both relieved of their duties in May 2014.

In November 2015, Tugay was appointed as manager of Turkish second division side Sanliurfaspor but left in April 2016 by mutual agreement after disappointing results in the league.
