Fenerbahçe ‘considering’ withdrawal from Süper Lig

Fenerbahçe will consider withdrawing from the Turkish topflight after some of the club’s players were attacked by Trabzonspor fans following a road victory over the weekend, the Süper Lig club has said.

Trabzonspor supporters stormed the pitch and brawled with security forces and Fenerbahçe players after their team lost 3-2 on March 17 in the latest incident in a league that has been marred by controversy this season.

“We will create our own destiny, we’ll be relegated to a lower league, if necessary,” Fenerbahçe President Ali Koç said at a press conference late on March 18.

“We’ll die once instead of dying every day. If necessary, we’ll play [in the First Division] for a year and win promotion again. If you treat us like a pariah club in this country, and I say this to the state, to the TFF [Turkish Football Federation], to the media, we have to decide our own future. This is not some kind of blackmail or threat,” he added.

Fenerbahçe will hold an Extraordinary General Assembly Meeting on April 2, the Board of Directors decided on March 18.

The agenda points include evaluation of the actions to be taken following the incident “including the withdrawal of our football team from the Süper Lig,” a club statement read.
