Turkish FA banned Colin Kazim-Richards for 4 matches after his sent-off in the Besiktas – Fenerbahce derby. The reason behind the 4 match ban was the words Colin Kazim-Richards said to the assistant referee.
November 24, 2009
Emre Belozoglu got an injury on the last matchday against Besiktas (3-0). The groin injury seems to leave Emre out of action for about a month. The utility and hardworking midfilder was one of the key factors in Fenerbahce’s success this year and coach Christoph Daum will have hard times to find a replacement in his calibre.
Mehmet Topuz and Ozer Hurmaci are the main contenders for the position. He earlier used Mehmet Topuz in that area and moved Colin Kazim-Richards to the right wing at times when Emre was not available. This scenario agains seems likely.
