Niyazi Serhat Akın (born June 5, 1981 in Bretten ) is a former Turkish football player . His brother Serkan is also a professional footballer. Serhat Akın was a quick attacker who could be used either as a right winger or as a center forward.


Serhat Akın was born in 1981 as the son of Turkish immigrants in the small German town of Bretten ( Baden-Württemberg ).


Serhat Akın married Eileen Ogunmakin, the sister of soul and reggae singer Ayọ , in the summer of 2010 . He has two children with Eileen. He currently lives in Izmir.



He started playing soccer at SV Oberderdingen, FC Viktoria Jöhlingen and VfB Eppingen . In the e-youth he switched to Karlsruher SC . The Turkish Football Association soon discovered his talent and recommended him to club coaches in Turkey. Although Trabzonspor and Beşiktaş Istanbul expressed interest in him, he signed a two-year contract with Fenerbahçe Istanbul in 2000 . In his debut season 2000/01 he was used in 25 league games, scored nine goals and won the championship title with the team. The next two seasons Serhat scored another 22 goals, but could not win any other trophies with the team. In December 2003 he suffered a groin injury and was therefore rarely used in the second half of the season. Nevertheless, Fenerbahçe was able to secure the championship with four points ahead of Trabzonspor. Serhat, who his teammates called Kadiköyün boğasi ( Eng . 'The bull of Kadiköy'), scored eight goals in 21 games.

For the 2005/06 season Serhat moved from Fenerbahçe Istanbul to RSC Anderlecht and was able to celebrate another national title in 2006 with the Belgian championship. In January 2007 Akın moved back to his native Germany on loan and was hired by the then second division club 1. FC Köln . However, the Domstadters only made seven appearances and one goal. Serhat left the club at the end of the 2006/07 season and returned to Anderlecht. His contract, which expired at the end of the 2008 season, was not renewed.

In August 2008 Serhat returned to Turkey and signed a one-year contract with the newly promoted Kocaelispor , who was trained by the experienced coach Engin İpekoğlu . In the winter break of the 2008/09 season Serhat moved to Konyaspor , left the club after the end of the season. In mid-September 2009 Akın began to keep fit in his youth club, the Karlsruher SC , in its U23 team and received a contract with the Baden team in November 2009. By the end of 2009 he had scored four goals in five games for the second team in the Regionalliga, and he was used for the first time in the second half of the season on January 15, 2010. By the summer of 2011 he had a total of 16 second division games and scored three goals. At the end of the season Serhat Akın did not get a new contract with KSC and wanted to end his career due to the persistent injury misfortune. But in August he surprisingly switched to the Turkish third division club Turgutluspor . There he built on his former good performances.

For the 2012/13 season he moved to the second division Şanlıurfaspor . Here Akın asked a few days after the end of the pre-season camp for his release and separated from this club.

A few weeks after separating from Şanlıurfaspor, he and his brother Serkan Akın moved to the Turkish third division club Altay İzmir . At the end of January 2013, he dissolved his contract with Altay İzmir and moved to the German top division TSV Grunbach . For the new 2013/14 season he joined the Berlin regional league team BAK 07 . There he ended his career after one season.

National team

In August 2002 Serhat made his debut for the Turkish national team in a 3-0 win over Georgia . He scored his first international goal during his next UEFA EURO 2004 qualifying session against Slovakia , followed by two more goals against Liechtenstein , but his country was unable to qualify for the 2004 European Championship in Portugal .
