The Turkish Football Federation (TFF) Wednesday said it had agreed terms with veteran Romanian coach Mircea Lucescu to take charge of the national side. The federation and Lucescu have agreed a two-year deal, with an option for one more year, the TFF said. Lucescu will have the target of helping Turkey qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia after an indifferent campaign so far. The Romanian, 72, will be a familiar face to Turkish fans after stints coaching both Istanbul rivals Galatasaray and Besiktas.But he is best-known for a 12-year spell with Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk, where a string of achievements included winning the 2009 UEFA Cup.
