Playing career[edit]

Aksoy played a season at Kayserispor before being called up for military service. In an effort to defer it, Aksoy moved back to Berlin again and signed for TeBe.[2] Unfit for first team football, Aksoy trained with the reserve team for a while before later going on to make 43 further appearances as Tennis Borussia were relegated twice in successive seasons. Aksoy saw out the remainder of his playing career at fellow Berliners SV Yeşilyurt before retiring in 2004.
