Batuhan Altintas is a son of Yusuf – a famous Galatasary and Turkey defender from the 80s. Even though the biggest and most known talent at Bursaspor currently is Enes Unal, Batuhan also has a big talent and a skillset, and Bursaspor have high hopes for him. He made his debut in the first team as a 16-year old in a cup game vs Fenerbahce on 16 January 2013. Three days later he made his debut against Kayserispor in the Super Lig. To this date, he has 10 appearances in the official game of “Green Crocodiles” – and that number should rise substantially very soon. It is also worth noting that he has represented Turkey on many age levels – from U-15 all the way to U-19.
