DAILY MAIL 🔵 Trabzonspor fume at punishment after fans attacked Fenerbahce players

  • Trabzonspor have called for Turkish Football Federation officials to step down
  • The club will play six home games with no fans following hooligan violence 
  • Four points from safety and a favourable run of fixtures… Burnley DO have a sniff at the great escape – Listen to the It’s All Kicking Off podcast 

Trabzonspor have reacted furiously after the Turkish Super League ordered them to playtheir next six home games behind closed doors following fan violence, replying: ‘f*** your justice!’ 

The club have also demanded that members of the Turkish Football Federation’s disciplinary council resign.  

Trabzonspor hooligans invaded the pitch to attack Fenerbahce players in a febrile 3-2 defeat last month, with footballers forced to defend themselves in disgraceful scenes. 

Fenerbahce threatened to withdraw from the league as Trabzonspor initially faced no repercussions but have since voted to stay in.

‘F*** your justice! Get up from your seats, resign!’ Trabzonspor wrote in an extraordinary statement on X, tagging the Turkish Football Federation.

Along with their ban on fans, Trabzonspor have also been fined £75,000. 

One of the club’s coaches, Egemen Korkmaz, has been banned from the dressing room and bench for one match.

Fenerbahce stars Irfan Can Egribayat and Jayden Oosterwolde were handed one-game bans for fighting with opposition fans. 

However, Bright Osayi-Samuel, who was assaulted by a fan and fought, was not sanctioned. 

Michy Batshuayi and former QPR star Osayi-Samuel fought back alongside team-mates as thugs invaded the pitch, brandishing weapons and even corner flags.

Even at half-time, missiles had rained from the stands, with goalkeeper Dominik Livakovic left bleeding after being struck by a coin. Edin Dzeko and Dusan Tadic were also hit.

The feeling of animosity inside the Papara Park stadium was amplified by Batshuayi’s late winner as supporters hurled objects on to the pitch late in the game. 

The incident began when a lone supporter evaded stewards and ran directly towards the celebrating stars in the centre of the pitch.

As they moved ever closer to the players without being intercepted by security, former Osayi-Samuel was forced to fight back to protect himself.

The 26-year-old could be seen raining down punches on his would-be attacker, as his team-mates and members of staff rushed to his aid.

From that point on the situation devolved even further as scores of fans began to make their way beyond the barricades, rushing directly onto the pitch.

Clips circulated on social media showing another supporter sprinting directly towards former Chelsea and Crystal Palace star Batshuayi.

Taking direct action the Belgian forward launched into a spinning heel kick connecting with the supporter and causing them to quickly disperse. 

The potential for serious harm to have been caused during the incident was made frighteningly clear with images on social media appearing to show a supporter appearing to brandish a weapon during the ugly scenes.
