Comparisonator played a crucial role in Franck Ribery’s transfer to Fiorentina. Making Franck believe that he would be successful in Italy and to convince the club by sharing Comparisonator Virtual Transfer data made the transfer possible.

I have always had a good friendship with Comparisonators’ CEO Tarkan Batgun over the last 10 years. He and his development team worked almost 2.5 years to develop this fantastic player comparison tool. Indeed, during the last development stage (summer 2019) I also did get involved and shared ideas with Comparisonator developers and Tarkan personally.

Firstly we tried to understand Francks’ playing dynamics to check 5 major league dynamics in order to find the best. the suitable league that Franck possible would be successful. We went through all the parameters league feature inside Comparisonator in all leagues to compare his different parameters. And we both decided that this league could be Italian Seria A.Then our investigation leads us to also analyze to find out which team he could replicate his success with? After analyzing league parameters in all the teams in Italy, I finally decided that the best option would be Fiorentina, thinking that they need a player like Franck.

After numerous talks, I have finally sent my report to Sports Director Daniele Pradè, who sent him the virtual transfer outputs from Comparisonator. Mind you, at that point in time, Comparisonator was not even in the market and the version beta was in use by only selected friends of Tarkan Batgun including me. The good thing is that, when we check back the estimated data to compare it with the data of Comparisonator, it was almost a match to prove the product was in good shape. This followed on Tarkan’s’ launching the product and Tuttomercato carrying this to news headline in Italy.
