Fenerbahce chairman files complaint against UEFA

Jailed Fenerbahce chairman Aziz Yidirim has filed a complaint against UEFA President Michel Platini, asserting that Platini made statements that the Turkish club was guilty of match fixing before the case has even been complete.

The formal complaint said: “Although there has not been a court ruling that Fenerbahce Sports Club is guilty of the charges, Platini influenced the Turkish Football Federation along with the officials who are executing the investigation.”

Yildirim is currently being held under arrest amid the allegations of match fixing in Turkey and the Turkish Football Federation has warned that should the club be found guilty, then Fenerbahce could be relegated to a lower league in Turkey.

Platini said in a recent interview: “Don’t get mad at me, get mad at those who fixed the matches. You really don’t know why Fenerbahce is being excluded from the Champions League? The investigation is ongoing. Everyone will learn every single detail once the investigation is complete.”
