BREAKING NEWS: Incidental allegations from Ali Koç: Response to Erden Timur

Fenerbahçe Club President Ali Koç made statements at the Supreme Council Board meeting. Ali Koç gave striking answers to Erden Timur's words.

Fenerbahçe Club President  made statements regarding the agenda of the Fenerbahçe Club High Council Board meeting.

Ali Koç's statements are as follows:

“The transfer of our teacher İsmail Kartal to PFDK was the last straw. There is so much information and documents behind him that we said enough. He stated that we will fight for this job as much as the championship in the remaining part of our term to change this. To the state, We are calling the TFF and everywhere, but no one moves. As Fenerbahçe, we will fight this fight until the end.

“CONGRATULATIONS TO TRABZONSPOR, WE WERE NOT GOOD, NO NEED FOR EXCUSES”

Yesterday's match spoiled the atmosphere here a bit. I congratulate Trabzonspor. We weren't okay, no excuses needed. If they had said at the beginning of the season that you would have 30 points at the end of 11 weeks, everyone would have accepted it.

We were doing well last year, but after a Trabzonspor match, things started to get worse. Don't fall into this mentality. This year things are much different for us in a positive way.

I asked why we are making these statements, why wait until Sunday. Interesting events took place in Turkish football last week. We have problems with the match between Çaykur Rizespor and Pendikspor. What was done to Ferdi in Pendikspor… Then, after the match, our coach İsmail Kartal was referred to PFDK. It was an extremely naive and disrespectful statement. This was the last straw for us.

“THE RESIGNATION OF REFEREE KEMAL YILMAZ WAS THE DESCRIPTION OF THE SYSTEM ESTABLISHED AGAINST FENERBAHÇE”

Kemal Yılmaz, who has been an assistant referee for 27 years, resigned from the profession. The reason for resignation confirmed the issues we pointed out. It was the revelation of the order established against Fenerbahçe. Even this letter has the effect of completely changing the arbitration institution.

“IF IT HAPPENED IN ANY OTHER COUNTRY, THE GROUND WOULD SHAKE”

What happened in the last 6 days would be shocking if it happened in another country. The dynamics of football would change. Let's see what will happen in our country? Will it be ignored and normalized as usual? Or will these events become the Susurluk of Turkish football?

“WE LEARNED THAT 2020-21 VAR RECORDS WERE GIVEN TO CÜNEYT ÇAKIR BY TARIK ONGUN”

Mr. Erman Toroğlu said, ‘VAR records are in Cüneyt Çakır's possession, investigate this.' We then examined it. We learned that the VAR records for the 2020/21 season in question were given to Cüneyt Çakır by Tarık Ongun. Did we learn right or wrong? We applied, inquired, but still no action.

“DRAW THESE NAMES IN YOUR HEAD”

Kadir Sağlam, Koray Gençerler, Alper Ulusoy… Get these names engraved in your mind. Without getting rid of theseFootball cannot be saved.

VAR RECORDS CLAIM

“There is no video sent to me directly or indirectly as Ali Koç. ‘You need to investigate this, what are you waiting for?' I said. Two questions have been asked. They send it on Saturday, saying respond within three days. ‘1- Have the VAR records of the match between Fenerbahçe and Adana Demirspor been sent to you? 2- Do you have any other points you want to mention?' That's the situation. You physically need to call me and take my statement. Mine, everyone relevant. The person making these allegations can distort the facts so much… These are not matters to be investigated with such written, two cheap questions. These are the issues that need to be investigated to the fullest for the sake of Turkish football's integrity.”

“May God give patience to RIZESPOR”

For some reason, strange things are happening in Rize – may God give patience to Rizespor – and they always happen in someone's favor. (Galatasaray's) Statistically, there is a distribution here; it is one-sided.

Our opponent won many of their matches by a single margin. We focus on referee decisions that will affect the score, but not only critical mistakes but also whistles that affect the flow of the match are the factors that affect the score. It directly affects the championship race.

“TFF SAYS ‘IT DOES NOT BIND ME', IT BINDS YOU!”

“The allegations on Halk TV are concerning. The statement by the TFF is in the manner of ‘It doesn't bind me.' It binds you! The TFF has the responsibility to keep football clean.”

BETTING WORDS

Incredible bets are made in the lower leagues. I'm going to TFF. I'm showing secretly taken images. Negotiations are being made between the two teams. What should TFF do here? I have these videos. Shouldn't these be investigated?

HAKAN CEYLAN SUBJECT

Now let's talk about referee Hakan Ceylan-Leyla Ceylan… There are allegations regarding Turkish football in this divorce case. They will probably explain this by saying that the divorce case is none of my business. The issues in this divorce case that are requested to be investigated must be investigated to the fullest. Another important factor is that it provides almost exact information on subjects that I have serious knowledge about.

“WE WILL COMPLAIN THE ‘İZMİR REFEREE GROUP' INCIDENT TO UEFA AND IFAB”

We will complain about this ‘Izmir Referee Group' incident to UEFA and IFAB. The point is this; Friends in the Aegean region are receiving matches from UEFA and they say we did not send the medical report, we are late. They get retrospective reports. They cannot fulfill the paperwork bureaucracy. In order not to be a victim, they get old reports. How can we expect the man who received a fake report to officiate a fair match? Aren't you embarrassed when you look in the mirror while brushing your teeth?

“AHMET İBANOĞLU'S CHARACTER IS WEAK, SPINELESS”

MHK (Central Referee Committee) President Ahmet İbanoğlu's character is weak and spineless. This is a fact, not an opinion, this is information. This friend loves position and position. He fulfills every task assigned to him. He is from the Aegean Region, Denizli. Who is the leader of this, brother? Tolga Özkalfa appears.

“FENERBAHÇE COMMUNITY, RISE UP”

Kemal Yılmaz's statements should be a milestone in Turkish football. The man says, “I am being punished for my decision in favor of Fenerbahçe and I am leaving the profession.” Hey Fenerbahçe community, rise up! Young friends on social media, there is no insult left that we do not receive after a bad match. Look what's going on.

PENALTY POSITION IN THE FENERBAHÇE-GAZİANTEP FK MATCH

“This has happened in another match, but we might have missed it. Serkan Olguncan is again an assistant referee. Fenerbahçe-Gaziantep match, if I remember correctly, the first match of the season. He warns the referee and gets a penalty for referee Abdulkadir Bitigen, but the decision is overturned by VAR. Commentators say it's a clear penalty and VAR shouldn't interfere in this situation. Serkan Olguncan doesn't get matches for weeks. From August 13th to September 25th, he doesn't get any matches. Who is in the VAR? Well-known figures. Serkan Tokat and Alper Ulusoy continue to get matches continuously. Mr. Büyükekşi, am I telling the truth or not? I don't know what you think; I'm asking this and the reason beneath it.”

“SERDAR TATLI SAYS ‘THESE 3 REFEREES SHOULD DEFINITELY NOT BE GIVEN A MATCH'”

Former MHK President Serdar Tatlı leaves a letter before resigning. Nobody wonders about this. He says there are 3 referees, these referees should definitely not be given a match. I have these names, but I won't pronounce them right now. Knowledge is power. Mr. Büyükekşi, have you seen this letter? These referees are still getting intense matches. After what I said, the country needs to stand up.

“I APOLOGIZE TO FERHAT GÜNDOĞDU”

I owe an apology. Mr. Ferhat Gündoğdu carried out a March 8 operation. We were one of those who reacted most to this operation. I thought he was probably right, now I say he was clearly right. I apologize. Mr. Çebi also touches us from time to time, and he is right in his own way.

HUGH DALLAS ALLEGATION

“Hugh Dallas stands up Koray Gençerler at the end-of-season seminar. He evaluates the annulment of Mert Hakan's goal against Adana Demirspor as a scandalous mistake. He asks, ‘If it had been inside the penalty area, would you have given a penalty for this?' and receives a ‘No' answer. He then asks, ‘So why did you cancel it?' Then this is omitted from the press statement. Oğuz Sarvan, over 70 years old, God bless him with a long life, is working at the academy without trembling. Mr. Büyükekşi, a question for you, is this true?”

ABDÜLKERİM BARDAKCI'S POSITION IN THE RIZESPOR-GALATASARAY MATCH

There is a claim like this, I ask; Was the issue made before the goal in the Rizespor-Galatasaray match, which was considered a foul by everyone, included in the survey or not? In our opinion, it was not included. We want answers. We want answers to these questions. I'm asking very civilly, Mr. Büyükekşi, maybe you don't know either.

“WHO REFERRED MY COACH TO PFDK?”

I ask; Who referred my coach to PFDK Diciplinary Board?  You did not direct insults at your own MHK president, which were harsh and unbecoming of a human being, let alone a woman, when tens of thousands of people were doing so. When we asked, you gave us ridiculous answers. No sir, it wasn't 100% enough. The whole stadium is screaming. You cannot support your own MHK president.

You are referring my coach. Who shipped it? Consultant? TFF is managed by consultants. Did the consultant refer you by asking the TFF president? Who shipped it? You have to answer this. These discourses are not discourses to be referred to. What message are you trying to give to whom? Who referred my coach or did not refer the other one because of these statements?

“THIS WORK WILL NOT GO WITH ULUSOYS, CEYLANS, GENÇERS, AND TOKATS”

It doesn't work like that. This will not work with Ulusoys, Ceylans, Gençers and Tokats. Take me to court. I'm telling you about the work you do in front of millions.

ANSWER TO ERDEN TIMUR

There is a friend. The monument of honesty. There is no one more honest than him in Turkey. He said we have documents. We say show it. No no no! He can't do it, he's afraid. There are two issues he mentions as documents. One of them is former MHK President Lale Orta sending VAR footage. These are such an organization… Rest assured. We have received nothing directly or indirectly from your president or your administration. I'm going to court. There is a reputation attack.

“WHO ARE THESE 12 REFEREES?”

They say to this man, ‘Go out and publish something, go out and publish a document.' One of them is the videos that Lale Orta sent me, it gives the time, says input and output, and talks about something called 12 referees. He says 12 referees, 12 referees, 12 referees. Who are these 12 referees? Maybe they deceived him, he believed it immediately.

“LET ME GIVE YOU TO SELAHATTIN BAKİ AND SEE WHAT HE DOES”

The friend who slanders me also says something about Beşiktaş. Breakfast at the hotel, he says that. He's throwing mud. He gives the poison. We laugh and say, but this is very serious. He says we sent them and asked them one by one. Then, thank God, a smart man comes out and says, ‘What an answer did you get?' He says, ‘I don't know whether it was sent or not.' We just happened to come across it the other day. ‘Did you send it?' I said. He said ‘Uh oh'. He's not telling the truth. At this level, a person says ‘Oh wow'. No way, no way! So what are we fighting against? Let me give you to Selahattin Baki, see what he does. You won't come out to me. Selahattin, please don't say Alzheimer's disease in such a disrespectful way again. What was said to those who believed the lie he told? It also has its equivalent in medicine.

SELIM SOYDAN

Selim Soydan is my brother Selim. I love it, I respect it, I am amazed. If there are Fenerbahce players like this, there is no need for a rival. I could only read two or three lines, but I couldn't enjoy the rest. 39 of our congress members applied for the disciplinary board. It would be bad for someone like Selim Soydan to remain without a club. Fenerbahçe Disciplinary Board decides what this issue will be.

“I DID NOT RANT LIKE THIS”

You know my stance. I was against it before Büyükekşi came. I explained why I was against it both to him and to everyone else. I didn't rant like this (pointing to Erden Timur's image on the screen).

“WE WILL NOT FORGET HIM AT THE CHAMPIONSHIP CELEBRATION”

A former MHK Board Member has a claim. It will be out soon too. It is said that after his favorite team won, he praised the referees of the match in front of others and this was repeated frequently. Is this true, Mr. President? We will never forget how you looked at the championship celebration. They give away the cup in all other tournaments. They don't stomp like you.

“ARE YOU GOING TO PUNISH IT OR ARE YOU GOING TO GET TO THE BOTTOM OF IT?”

Will you punish those who raise their voices for clean football, will you act as if nothing happened, or will you get to the bottom of it? Now we have to question you as to your intentions.

You will choose the side. Clean football? Is it a continuation of the theatre?
