Ali Artuner (5 September 1944 – 16 February 2001) was a Turkish footballer who played as a goalkeeper for Göztepe and the Turkish national team in the 1960s, rising to the position of captain on both teams. In his hometown of İzmir, there are many sports complexes and tournaments bearing his name.


He is also the uncle of former Turkish international goalkeeper, Cenk Gönen.

Club career

Born in İzmir, Artuner started out as a halfback. However, he left school at the age of 17, and made his professional debut for Göztepe as goalkeeper that same year (1961). He went on to play 15 consecutive seasons for his team in the Süper Lig. He also helped them win the 1968–69 and 1969–70 editions of the Turkish Cup, as well as the 1970 Turkish Super Cup. He is widely seen as a club legend, and was nicknamed "Moskova panteri" (Moscow Panther).
