Jesé's Turkish adventure comes to an end

Jesé's adventure in the Turkish top flight has come to an end little over six months before it started. The Spanish forward is a free agent once again after his contract with Ankaragücü was rescinded.

“An agreement has been reached so that the contract between our club and Jesé Rodríguez is terminated by mutual agreement. We thank Jesé Rodríguez for all his effort and his services and we wish him success in his career,” a statement from the Turkish club read.

The 29-year-old, who has played for seven different clubs including Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain, was signed by MKE Ankaragücü at the start of the season. In his short career at the Turkish club, Jesé played 14 matches in the Super Lig and two matches in the Turkish Cup, scoring five goals in total.

AS recently reported that Jesé intended to leave the Turkish club on 2 January. The former Real Madrid striker was not happy with his situation at the Turkish club. He was left on the bench in last week’s game against Galatasaray even though his recent form should have guaranteed him a place in the team’s starting XI.

Jesé was not rated by Ankaragucu manager Ömer Erdogan which didn’t help matters. The forward started just six games out of the 16 he has played this season, and didn’t complete the full 90 minutes in any of them. The player is now looking for a new club with the transfer window in Europe open until the end of the month or the possibility of going to MLS after that.
