Muhammet Akagündüz, nicknamed Aka, (born January 11, 1978 in Bingöl) is a Turkish-born Austrian footballer.

Akagündüz moved with his family to Austria in 1987 and he gained Austrian citizenship three years later. He excelled at school and enrolled on a medical education course while starting his football career.

Club career[edit]

His career has seen the much-travelled Aka play for FK Austria Wien, Gerasdorf, St. Pölten, VfB Admira Wacker Mödling, SV Ried, Malatyaspor, Konyaspor, Rapid Wien, Kayserispor and Hellas Verona.

International career[edit]

Akagündüz has also played for the Austrian national team, having decided to represent his naturalised country rather than that of his birth. He made his debut for Austria in October 2002 against Belarus and has earned 10 caps, scoring one goal. His final international game was a February 2007 friendly match against Malta in which he came on as a late substitute for Roland Linz.
