In recent weeks, protests against President Ali Koç have come to the fore in Fenerbahçe’s matches at Ülker Stadium. We saw a different picture in the Altay match. İsmail Kartal returned to Kadıköy as Fenerbahçe’s coach after 6 and a half years. Saying “I know the fans love me”, Kartal was greeted with cheers by the 12th man. The stands showed great affection towards Kartal before the match. İsmail Kartal responded to the support of the fans, first with applause and then with a salute. It has been 9 days since Kartal took over the team. You don’t have a magic wand. Everything will be alright in time. I see that someone in our media has already started to criticize the teacher. It’s unfair to blame people early. First of all, there is a noticeable difference in the team compared to the first game. No one should ignore this.
Fenerbahçe reacted to the failure of referee Hüseyin Göçek and VAR Barış Saka to give a penalty when Serdar Dursun and Pelkas remained on the ground in the Altay match. The club’s statement said, “Our two clear penalty positions were skipped and ignored both on the field and on the VAR screens.”
