Galatasaray coach’s nine-match ban approved

Ankara, April 19 (IANS) Disciplinary board of the Turkish Football Federation (TFF) has approved Galatasaray coach Fatih Terim’s nine-match ban over his overreaction to the referee of the match between Mersin Idmanyurdu and Galatasaray two weeks ago.

Terim has been given a nine-match ban over “unsportsmanlike conduct” during a match against the Super League’s Mersin Idmanyurdu April 6. However, Galatasaray then appealed to the disciplinary board to review the decision, reports Xinhua.

Fatih Terim was sent off the pitch in the second half during Galatasaray-Mersin Idmanyurdu match for his reaction to the referee’s controversial decisions. Terim threw the ball to the ground and almost physically assaulted the referee to express his anger.

The final verdict bans Terim from leading Galatasaray from the touchline for six games this season and three games next season.
