Altinordu goalkeeper Berke Ozer has been accused of overconfidence by his manager after making mistakes in the 2-0 defeat to Umraniyespor at the weekend.

Turkish publication Ajansspor reported last week that Chelsea are to send scouts to assess the 17 year old in training before seeing him in action against Gaziantep FK on Friday.

Whether Ozer will start the match is now questionable after his latest performance. Sporx report that Altinordu manager Huseyin Eroglu was not happy with the teenager’s display, questioning his attitude and “excessive self-confidence.”

The keeper has only started four games in the Turkish second division this season, letting in nine goals and keeping one clean sheet. He started the season as the club’s first choice but he has been in and out of the matchday squad due to international commitments.

Ozer played in the Under 17 World Cup in India where he featured in Turkey’s three group matches, playing in the 1-1 draw against New Zealand and the defeats to Mali and Paraguay.
