Galatasaray Odeabank Istanbul announced on Friday the decision to waive coach Erman Kunter, due to the poor results of the team this season. Kunter, 61, arrived to the team last summer after the team had won the 7DAYS EuroCup in 2016 and played the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague in 2016-17. The team started the season slow with four straight losses in the regular season but, after that, it recovered and managed to make the Top 16 as second in Group B. The team is currently ranked 10th in the Turkish League. The Top 16 started with a Turkish derby against Darussafaka Istanbul that Galatasaray also lost. It was after this last result that Kunter has been released. Now the club will be looking for a substitute.
