Career[edit]

He played for Trabzonspor for twelve years between 1975 and 1987. During this period he won six league championships. He was part of the "Trabzonpor Efsanesi" (literally "The Legend of Trabzonspor", a name given by the Turkish press) along with other local players such as Turgay Semercioğlu, Necmi Perekli, and Ali Kemal Denizci. Güneş has 31 caps for the Turkey national football team, five of which as the captain.

Coaching career[edit]

His managerial career started at Trabzonspor, where he was the assistant manager before being promoted. He came close to winning the championship in 1996, after leading all season, but in the end his team came second. In the same year, Trabzonspor also played in the UEFA Cup where they were knocked out by Schalke 04. He left the club soon after, and worked at other clubs, including Antalyaspor. In 2000, he was hired to coach Turkish national football team. Turkey qualified for the 2002 FIFA World Cup and finished third. Güneş won the UEFA Coach of the Year award for 2002. After the World Cup he received many offers from Greece, Brazil and Spain but he wanted to stay with Turkey. After Turkey failed to qualify for Euro 2004, Güneş was sacked as manager. Güneş He returned to Trabzonspor in January 2005, signing a three and a half year contract but left shortly afterwards following poor results.

On 8 December 2006, FC Seoul, one of the leading football clubs in the K-League, announced their three-year contract with Güneş starting from 2007.
