Şenol Güneş (Turkish pronunciation: [ˈʃenoɫ ˈɟyneʃ], born 1 June 1952) is a Turkish football manager, former player and the current manager of Beşiktaş J.K. His biggest accomplishments to date are coaching the Turkish team that won the third place in the 2002 World Cup and winning the Süper Lig title with Beşiktaş.

Career[edit]

Güneş began his amateur career at Erdoğdu Gençlik as a goalkeeper. Shortly after he was recruited for the Trabzonspor development team, he began playing for the senior team soon after. He played for Trabzonspor for twelve years between 1975 and 1987. During this period he won six league championships. In the 1978–79 season he set the Süper Lig clean sheet record by not conceding a single goal for 1,110 minutes.[1] 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 the 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.

He returned to Trabzonspor in January 2005, signing a three and a half year contract but left shortly afterwards following poor results. At this time there were rumours that Güneş would be taking a coaching job in Iran or in the United Arab Emirates. 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.[2]

Three years later, Güneş moved back to Turkey, to his hometown Trabzon and returned as head coach of Trabzonspor for the third time, replacing Hugo Broos. After Trabzonspor, he signed with Bursaspor in a one-year contract. Bursaspor finished 6th place in 2014–15 Süper Lig and played final Turkish Cup with him. On 11 June 2015, he signed with Beşiktaş J.K. in a 2+1 year contract.

On 13 May 2016, Güneş led Besiktas to its 14th title (and first since 2009). For Güneş, it was his first title as manager.
