The Turkish Football Federation have appointed Italian Vincenzo Montella as their new head coach of the national team.
The 49-year-old has been out of work since June after parting company with Turkish Super Lig side Adama Demirspor following an impressive fourth-placed finish last term.

Montella reached an agreement yesterday and will put pen to paper over a three-year deal.
A Roma legend during his playing career, Montella went on to manage in Italy with Fiorentina, Sampdoria, AC Milan, and Sevilla before moving on to Turkey in 2021.
Montella replaces Stefan Kuntz in the hot seat at Turkey after it was announced earlier today that the Turkish Football Federation had sacked the 60-year-old former German international after a disappointing draw at home to Armenia earlier this month.
