SELAHATTIN BAKI: “LET THE BÜYÜKEKŞİ FEDERATION RESPOND”

In the continuation of his words, said, “There are very simple questions that the Büyükekşi Federation needs to answer. If, as some claims suggest, this image and photo are manipulated, then why was there a punishment? He should not have received a one-match penalty if these images are not manipulated.

Therefore, this decision, which benefits only one side and one community, has once again happened in front of the eyes of the Turkish football public, this injustice.

Once again, we are witnessing the proof that a team, a community, is being favored.”

RESPONSE TO GALATASARAY

Regarding the statement of their arch-rivals, Baki said, “I cannot pass without saying this; yesterday, a Galatasaray official made a statement. Those who listen to the statement, read it, would think that we made a statement out of nowhere. Whereas, they, in front of a century-old icon, Turkey's largest civil society organization, should receive their deserved response if they dare to say shameless things officially. But they are always like this. First, they set everything on fire, receive a response properly, and after receiving that response, they play the victim, make a call for moderation. From now on, things will not go as they wish. If our style needs to change, our style will change. If the Fenerbahçe community needs to unite more aggressively, we will unite more aggressively. But we will continue to pursue the championship on the field as deserved and sportsmanlike as ever. And we will do everything in our power to break such lobbies.”
