Members of Fenerbahce voted against a proposal to leave the Turkish Super League.

The 19-time champions said in March that they would think about leaving the league following attacks on their players by Trabzonspor supporters.

As Fenerbahce triumphed 3-2, Trabzonspor supporters stormed the field, hurling themselves at players and security personnel.

“Withdrawing from the league was the least popular choice in all of our meetings,” chairman Ali Koc stated.

“Many believe we would have to deal with the same issues we deal with today in the lower division, which is why this alternative is not desired.

“This alternative will not be discussed until the general assembly at the conclusion of the current season.”

Anger increased after former Chelsea forward Michy Batshuayi scored an 87th-minute winner with objects thrown onto the pitch.

Former Blackpool and Queens Park Rangers winger Bright Osayi-Samuel of Nigeria knocked one pitch invader to the ground while Batshuayi attempted a kick at another.

Three Fenerbahce players and two club executives were reported for their role in the fighting to the Professional Football Disciplinary Board of Turkey by the Turkish Football Federation.
Gianni Infantino, the president of Fifa, called the incidents “totally unacceptable.”

The occurrences were deemed “unacceptable” by the Turkish Football Federation, which also said in a statement that “those guilty for these incidents will face the relevant criminal repercussions.”

Turkey’s Interior Minister, Ali Yerlikaya, announced a day later that 12 fans had been taken into custody.

Fenerbahce, two points behind leaders Galatasaray in the Super Liga after 30 games, will play host to Adana Fifa president Gianni Infantino, who said the incidents were “absolutely unacceptable.”.

The Turkish Football Federation called the events “unacceptable” and said in a statement that “the necessary criminal sanctions will be imposed on those responsible for these incidents.”.

A day later, Turkey’s Interior Minister, Ali Yerlikaya, said 12 fans had been arrested.

Fenerbahce are second in Super Lig after 30 games—two points behind leaders Galatasaray—and are scheduled to host Adana Demirspor on Wednesday.
