A club statement read: “With Mr. Ibrahim Uzulmez, there were differences of opinion during the negotiation of the contract and the parties gave up on the agreement to sign a contract.”Uzulmez, 45, led second-tier side Genclerbirligi to promotion this season, finishing runners-up by just two points.That was his second consecutive promotion campaign after he steered Caykur Rizespor to the second division title in 2017-18, with Rizespor going on to finish 10th in the top flight this term. Kasimpasa have a history of parting ways with managers in unconventional circumstances, and Uzulmez’s situation has similarities with events that occurred last year.In January 2018, then-manager Kemal Ozdes resigned following a 2-1 defeat to Besiktas.Kemal OzdesHe said on his departure: “The club president had some criticism about me. I met him and we thanked each other. Now I have heard the board have fired me.”But four days later, the club changed their mind and reinstated Ozdes, announcing him as their “new manager”. Ozdes lasted another nine months in his job and then, having started the 2018-19 campaign with 12 points from seven games, was sacked again. Just like Uzulmez’s departure, Kisampasa cited contractual disagreements as the reason.”As a result of the disagreements in our discussions with our manager Kemal Ozdes, our manager has decided to leave,” a club statement said on that occasion. “We wish him and his team success in their next job.”Kasimpasa had won all of their first four league games, although they lost their last three before Ozdes ultimately left.He was replaced by Mustafa Denizili who departed the club last month with two games of the 2018-19 season still to play. In an open letter published on the club’s website at the time, Denzili wrote: “This season we set big goals in the Super Lig race. We are at a point where we cannot realise what we wanted to. This situation led to the formation of a negative psychological environment in my team and management.”Like Denzili, Uzulmez is now also without a job having already been sacked by Genclerbirligi on Friday despite their promotion-winning season.last_img read more

Theres still much to be explored in Stranger Things

first_imgTokyo: ‘Stranger Things’ can be best described as the perfect ode to the pop culture of 1980s and its star, Millie Bobby Brown, says she now wants to see the show enter the era of 1990s in the follow-up seasons. Nostalgia is the USP of the show, which has paid homages to the likes of Steven Spielberg, John Carpenter and Stephen King in its own unique way. Brown, who portrays the fan-favourite Eleven, a girl with psychokinetic abilities, says the show should go on for two-three more seasons. “I want there to be at least two or three more (seasons). I think there’s so much more to be explored. Especially, like going into the ’90s. Imagine ‘Stranger Things’ in the ’90s. I think 1997-98 would be so cool to explore,” the 15-year-old actor said. Season three also features Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Gaten Matarazzo, to name a few.last_img read more
