Ali Nail Durmuş (born November 20, 1970 in Akyazı , Turkey ) is a former Turkish football player , coach, manager and politician. Because of his work for Bursaspor , he is strongly associated with this club as a home grown man. On the fan and club side, he is seen as one of the most important players in club history.

Player career


Durmuş was born in the western Turkish city of Akyazı in 1969 . At the end of his primary school education, he took part in an entry draft from Bursaspor and was then accepted into the youth department of this club. For the 1986/87 season he received a professional contract and was added to the squad of the first team at the age of 17 by head coach Nevzat Güzelırmak . Despite his youth, he quickly made it to a regular player and formed the storm of his team with Nenad Bijedić , Ahmet Kılıç and Çetin Kahraman . By the end of the season he had scored 4 goals in 28 league games. His club ended the season in 5th place in the table and repeated the second-best first division placement in the club's history. In the next three seasons Durmuş consolidated his position within the team. In the 1991/92 season Bursaspor started with the Yugoslav coach Đorđe Milić . This coach let Durmuş continue to appear as a regular player. After the club fell far short of expectations under this coach, he was replaced by former coach Yılmaz Vural in mid-November . This coach had already trained Durmuş's club two years ago. Under this coach Durmuş formed a successful team with then unknown players such as Vedat Vatansever , Hakan Şükür , Taner Ertaş and Feti Okuroğlu , all of whom would later become well-known greats in Turkish football. The team was supplemented with veterans such as Feyzullah Küçük , Turan Şen , Ján Gabriel . With this team you reached the 6th place in the table. Durmuş was the third best goalscorer of his team in all competitions with nine goals. In the Turkish Football Cup of the same season , the team reached the final. In the cup final, which was played back and forth at the time, Bursa clearly won their first game in front of their home crowd with 3-0 against Trabzonspor . They lost the second leg with 1: 5 and missed the cup win that was believed to be safe. Durmuş had made a significant contribution to reaching the finals with his two cup competition hits and several assists. In the second leg of the cup final, Durmuş saw a red card after the final whistle. Durmuş scored a goal in the 3-0 first leg and saw a red card in the severe second leg defeat in stoppage time . According to his own statements, he was so disappointed with this cup defeat that he did not recover from it in his entire playing career. In his opinion, the post-traumatic effects were so great that they kept him from a great career. After missing the cup, they played against Fenerbahçe Istanbul in the Prime Minister's Cup . The game decided Bursaspor 3-1 for themselves and won this cup for the second time after 1971, in which the club already prevailed 1-0 against Fenerbahçe. Durmuş scored the equalizer with a penalty to make it 1: 1. The other two youngsters Vedat Vatansever and Hakan Şükür scored the other goals. In the following season they again occupied the 6th place in the table and Bursaspor reached the quarter-finals in the Turkish Football Cup. Durmuş was here with eight goals the most successful goalscorer of his club. At the end of the season he received offers from the three big Istanbul clubs Beşiktaş Istanbul , Fenerbahçe Istanbul and Galatasaray Istanbul , but remained loyal to his home club. In the summer of 1993, the coach Vural left the club and was replaced by the German coach Sepp Piontek . Under this new coach, the club reached ten points in nine league games and fell far short of expectations. This is how the club's management reacted and replaced Piontek with Nevzat Güzelırmak. Also under this trainer one experienced a mixed season and finished 9th place in the table at the end of the season. Durmuş enjoyed the trust of both coaches. Because of this failure, there was a displeasure in the club. Durmuş, who was particularly interested in Fenerbahçe, decided to leave the club.

Fenerbahçe had at the time of the change with players like Bülent Uygun , Aykut Kocaman , Feyyaz Uçar , Rıdvan Dilmen , Oğuz Çetin several top scorers and national players in the squad that Durmuş could only play sporadically. So he completed only nine league games by the end of the season, only two of which over the full game length. For the coming season, the Istanbul team strengthened themselves in the offensive area with players like Dalian Atkinson , Jay-Jay Okocha , Elvir Bolić , Saffet Sancaklı , so that Durmuş was a reservist until the winter break and only made two league appearances. For the second half of the season he was loaned to the first division club Vanspor and for the next season to Zeytinburnuspor . After he was able to assert himself in these two game stations again, he was kept in the squad for the next season. In the coming season he won the Prime Minister's Cup with Fenerbahçe and played in just one league game.

In the summer of 1998 he moved to the second division Göztepe Izmir . With this club he was in the second division season 1998/99 playoff winner of the league and thus rise to the 1st Lig .

From the summer of 2000 he played in sequence at MKE Kırıkkalespor , Tekirdağspor and Kahramanmaraşspor and then ended his playing career in 2004.

National team

Durmuş started his national team career in 1986 in the Turkish U-16 national team. With this he qualified for the U-16 soccer championship in 1987 . After qualifying, he was also part of the tournament squad. Here they won group A and met the Italian U-16s in the semi-finals. They lost the game 1-0 and had to play for third place against hosts France. The team clearly lost this encounter with 0: 3 and thus reached fourth place. Durmuş played in all matches of his team during this tournament.

After the U-16 Durmuş played two years for the Turkish U-18 and then 17 games for the Turkish U-21 national team , in which he scored four times.

In the summer of 1991 he took part with the Turkish Olympic selection at the Mediterranean Games in Athens and won the silver medal.

Due to his shown performances at Bursaspor , Durmuş was nominated by the then national coach Sepp Piontek in three qualifying games for the 1994 World Cup in the squad of the Turkish national team . Here he was on the bench in three games and was not used.

Coaching career

Durmuş already worked in his penultimate player station at fourth division Tekirdağspor as an interim player- coach .

After finishing his playing career, Durmuş took over the fourth division club Kütahyaspor in the summer of 2004 and thus worked as head coach for the first time. He left this club at the end of the season and instead took over the Iğdırspor for the coming season . This was followed by coaching positions at various clubs in the TFF 2nd Lig , TFF 3rd Lig and the regional amateur league.
