Tugay generally keeps himself out of the media spotlight, and even with very good English and an apparent good sense of humour, he rarely gives an interview, even to his previous club's own radio station (Radio Rovers). Tugay is married to Etkin, a former Galatasaray and Turkish international basketball player. He has two children, named Berke and Melissa. As a youngster, he was also an extremely promising motor racer, competing as high as a Formula 3 level. His prowess as a cook is also revered, and in 2010 he was victorious in the Turkish version of the television programme MasterChef. Tugay describes himself as a Muslim, stating that it's "something which is in my heart and I don't need to express that to other people".[13]

Honours

On 4 October 2013, Galatasaray SK announced that Tugay Kerimoglu was assigned again for the position of the new assistant coach for Galatasaray, this time alongside of Roberto Mancini.[10] However, after Mancini's dismissal at the end of the 2013–14 season, he left his position.[11]

[9] On 22 March 2011, Hagi was sacked following a string of poor results. Tugay refused to become the head coach until the end of the season, saying it would be wrong to accept the position for the head coach right after the sacking of Hagi.[8] On 21 October 2010, Galatasaray SK announced that Tugay Kerimoglu was assigned for the position of the new assistant coach for Galatasaray, alongside of

On 3 June 2009 Tugay began working with his former manager Mark Hughes behind the scenes at Manchester City academy in a coaching role. He was linked for various assistant positions for the Turkish national team after Fatih Terim's departure, however he became the coordinator for the Galatasaray youth academy in February 2010.[7]

Managerial career

Tugay was known more as a deep-lying playmaker but could also play a more advanced role. A range of passing from five yards to 50, Tugay has been called a pass-master. He was capable of threatening goal with a sweetly hit long-range drive.

Playing style

Tugay has represented Turkey at Euro 1996, Euro 2000 and the 2002 FIFA World Cup, where Turkey finished in the quarter finals of Euro 2000 and third place in the 2002 World Cup. He retired from international football in 2003 after Turkey failed to qualify for Euro 2004. His last match was on 5 June 2007 in a friendly against Brazil in Dortmund, Germany. He wore number 94 to commemorate his 94 caps for his country.

International career

Former boss Graeme Souness brought Tugay to Ewood Park from Scottish side Rangers F.C. in the summer of 2001 for a £1.3m fee. His debut for Rovers was as a substitute against Sunderland. His first goal came on 14 October 2001 in a 7–1 home thrashing against West Ham United in which he scored with a trademark effort from outside the box, lobbing the keeper. Tugay immediately became a fan favourite at Blackburn, where he has been an integral part of the club's success on the field since his first season. Unfortunately he missed Blackburn's League Cup final win in 2002 through suspension. Tugay was named Blackburn's Player of the Year in the 2003–04 campaign. Tugay retired from football on 24 May 2009. His last game was against West Bromwich Albion at home at Ewood Park in a capacity of about 28,389 adoring fans, for both Blackburn and West Brom whilst applauding Tugay during the match once he went off as a substitute in the 85th minute to be replaced by Swedish left back Martin Olsson. He made a name for himself at Blackburn F.C when he struck several long-range efforts. His final career goal came against Portsmouth in a 3–2 Premier League defeat at Fratton Park on 30 November 2008. 98 days on from his 38th birthday, it made him the fourth oldest player ever to score a goal in the Premier League. [6]

Blackburn Rovers

He played for Galatasaray from 1987 to 2000, where he won the Turkish League six times and the Turkey Cup four times. The midfielder was made captain at Galatasaray in the 1992–93 season, making him the youngest captain in the history of his club. He had signed for Scottish club Rangers in the January 2000 mid season transfer window, and joined Blackburn Rovers for the 2001–02 season.[5]
