Ömer Erdoğan (born 3 May 1977) is a Turkish former international footballer.[1]

Life and career[edit]

Erdoğan began his professional career in Germany. He signed with KSV Hessen Kassel when he was 17, and moved to FC St. Pauli the following year. Erdoğan played with fellow Turkish-German footballers Deniz Barış and Cem Karaca at the time. Erdoğan was transferred to Erzurumspor in 1998. Bursaspor courted Erdoğan in 1998, but he chose to sign with Erzurumspor instead. He would end up signing for Bursaspor in 2006.[2]

Erdoğan had a successful stint at Diyarbakirspor from 2001–03. At the end of the 2002–03 season, 15–16 clubs were interested in signing the center back. He eventually signed for Galatasaray S.K., citing Fatih Terim, then manager of the Istanbul-based club, as the main reason behind the move.[2] He was a part of the Bursaspor squad that won the Süper Lig in 2009–10.[3]
