The Turkish football club is accused of bribing referees
The saga of scandal in Turkish football continues, as we mentioned earlier. Fans are accusing Fenerbahçe of bribing referees after the match with Karagümrük.
The reason behind these serious allegations is an incident in this match, where a Fenerbahçe defender handled the ball in the penalty area, but the referee did not award a penalty even after VAR review (the moment in the video, timestamp 4:33). Right after this, Fenerbahçe scored the winning goal and secured another victory.
A video clip has gone viral on the internet showing the Fenerbahçe defender handling the ball in their penalty area, and fans are once again collectively reaching out to UEFA representatives. However, the association is not responding to the fans' appeals, despite their significant number.
