Consequences of the Scandal at a Football Match in Turkey After the Referee Was Beaten

In Turkey, the management and staff of Ankaragücü beat up the referee after the game against Rizespor. TFF suspended all matches

Recently in Turkey, a scandal erupted involving the aggressive actions of representatives of the Ankaragücü football club towards referee Halil Umut Meler.

This incident, which occurred last Monday, caused widespread resonance after the match between Ankaragücü and Rizespor.

Faruk Koça, the head of the club from Ankara, was so outraged by the referee's decisions during the game that he lost control and attacked him. Other team staff followed his lead, also participating in the beating of the referee.

This incident had serious consequences. The Turkish Football Federation (TFF) announced the suspension of all league games until the situation is resolved.

Furthermore, TFF began an investigation into the incident, promising to take strict measures against those responsible. Rumors suggest that one possible measure being considered is even the expulsion of Ankaragücü from the Super League.

Referee Halil Umut Meler, who suffered from the attack, decided to leave professional football. His decision followed soon after the incident, highlighting the seriousness and shocking nature of the events.
