Besiktas Refuse to Continue Game Against Fenerbache

Recommended Posts

Besiktas refused to show for the resumption of their cup semi-final against Fenerbahce on Thursday after it was originally abandoned last month due to crowd violence.

The teams were locked at 0-0 in the April 19 second-leg game when the match was halted in the 57th minute after Besiktas coach Senol Gunes was struck by an object thrown from the stands. He needed five stitches in his head after he was taken to hospital.

Fenerbahce will be declared winners of the tie by default while Besiktas will not be able to play in the cup next season and will pay back the 4 million Turkish lira (£700,000) they earned from the competition this year.
