Ali Kemal Denizci (born 1 March 1950) is a Turkish former football manager and player who played as a winger and was best known for his stint with Trabzonspor. He was nicknamed Fırtına Kemal (English: Storm Kemal) because of his lightning pace.

Professional career[edit]

Ali Kemal joined Trabzonspor in 1972 after a couple seasons of playing amateur football. He helped the team get promoted to the Süper Lig for the first time in their history, and was their superstar player when they won their first two Süper Lig titles in the 1975–76, and 1976–77 seasons. In 1978, Trabzonspor had to sell him to cover their revenues and he moved to Fenerbahçe, causing the Trabzonspor fans to riot in the streets.[1] Ali Kemal ended his career with Beşiktaş where he won the 1981–82 1.Lig, and he played his final game in 1983 against his former club Trabzonspor.[2]

International career[edit]

Ali Kemal was the first-ever Trabzonspor player to play for the Turkey national football team.[3] He made 27 appearances for Turkey, scoring 3 times.

Ali Kemal's brother, Osman Denizci, was also a professional footballer in the Süper Lig, who played alongside him in Fenerbahçe.[4]
