Turkish top-division club Antalyaspor appointed Alex De Souza as their manager on a two-year contract.

Speaking to Anadolu, the deputy president and spokesperson Evren Alkan said their discussions with Alex De Souza, a former player for Fenerbahce, concluded successfully.

"We have signed a two-year contract with Alex. Mehmet Aurelio and two Brazilian coaches will assist him. Additionally, Mehmet Arslan will serve as the goalkeeper coach," he added.

Alkan also said the club would hold a signing ceremony with Alex in Türkiye's Mediterranean coastal province of Antalya after the end of the Super Lig season.

The 46-year-old manager previously served for Brazilian clubs Sao Paulo U20 and Serie B's Avai FC.

During his playing career in Fenerbahce, Alex scored 171 goals and had 146 assists in 344 matches.

He won three league titles with Fenerbahce (2005, 2007, and 2011) before ending his playing career in 2014.

Alex said in a video message shared by Antalyaspor on X that during his time in Türkiye, he had some of the greatest memories of his life, both on the pitch and personally.

"Today, after 20 years, I am returning to Antalyaspor to have new memories in Türkiye. This time, I will be on the sidelines as the coach of Antalyaspor.

"Are you ready, Antalya? I'm coming," he added.
