“I am very happy to be part of the Osasco team. It is a team of tradition, including an international one, as it holds a world club title and I hope to add to the group. I’m going to work hard for that”, said the 28-year-old athlete, 1.90m tall, who played for Yesilyurt, from the Turkish city of Istanbul.

This will be the first experience of the pointer/opposite in Brazil, but not the first contact with Brazilian volleyball. Ceren and Luizomar met in 2009, in Thailand, in the semifinal of the World Youth Championship, in which the Brazilian team, led by the coach from Osasc, won the title.

“Ceren is a potential athlete and comes to help us in the composition of the cast. With Silvana’s return, Joycininha’s growth, Ceren’s arrival and waiting for the Tandara case to be resolved, we hope to grow in the final phase of the Superliga. Fortunately, with a lot of work and commitment from the athletes and the coaching staff, we overcame all the difficulties, won the São Paulo title and ended 2021 in the runner-up position of the Superliga. Now it’s time to continue with the same determination and dedication, joining Ceren and having ‘one more piece on the board’”, said the coach.


Career – Ceren has already worn the shirt of the Turkish national team in two editions of the VNL (2018 and 2019), winning the silver medal in 2018. 2014/2015. He also had spells at Sariyer, Çanakkale, Beylikduzu, Besiktas and Fenerbahce, the latter between 2019 and 2021.

In clubs, his main results are a silver medal in the Club World Cup and a bronze in the Champions League, in addition to three runners-up in the Turkish Championship.
