Who is Xhevat Prekazi?

Xhevat Prekazi is an ethnic Kosovar Albanian football manager and former player.

He is generally considered one of the best players to have worn the jersey of the Turkish club Galatasaray. Prekazi was instrumental in building up the Galatasaray team to a point where it became the strongest Turkish league team and a major force in European football. His typical "banana crossings" from left-line into the penalty box always created danger for opponent defence. He is renowned for his brilliant technique, dribbling, long shots and crosses.

He became a Turkish citizen as Cevad Prekazi in his late career. His older brother Luan also played for Partizan.
