Midfielder “Rubin” Gekdeniz Karadeniz announced the completion of his career.
“Sometimes a person wants to tell something, but can not find the right words. My football career is 20 years old. All this time I was very supportive of the family.
First of all, I’m grateful to her. For 10 years I played for Trabzonspor. And I’m very proud of it. I take this opportunity to thank the club and the fans for their support.
I spent 10 excellent years in Kazan. I was proud to wear a T-shirt “Ruby”. I feel that my football road is coming to an end. I have two matches left here.
In Kazan, I always felt at home. This is my second home. The next game with “Ufa” will be my last home game in “Ruby”.
I take this opportunity to thank the fans for their support. I also thank all the Russian fans who treated me well. I thank every partner and every opponent. This is a very difficult moment. I did not expect it to be so difficult.
I am particularly grateful to Kurban Berdiyev. Thanks to the coaching staff and Rustem Saimanov, “said Karadeniz.
Karadeniz has been in the “Ruby” since 2008 and as part of Kazan played 299 matches.
The 38-year-old Turkish football player became a two-time champion of Russia (2008, 2009), winner of the Russian Cup (2012), winner of the Russian Super Cup (2010, 2012), bronze medalist of the Russian championship (2010).
