Fenerbahce the victims of corruption, says Ozdemir

2 May 2012 18:37

Fenerbahce vice-president Nihat Ozdemir said the club is being victimised by corruption allegations that have rocked Turkish football.

The Istanbul-based club, which won the 2011 domestic championship, was kicked out of this season's Champions League and has seen 13 of its members charged in the scandal, including president Aziz Yildirim.

But Ozdemir was confident that his club would be acquitted when the Turkish football federation (TFF) releases its findings on the allegations.

"There are so many mistakes against the privacy of investigation. Fenerbahce has been victimised," he claimed in a press conference.

"Fenerbahce, despite all the injustice and illegality of Turkish justice, continued to trust the legal system.

"Regarding the process, we will just have to support it. We have attempted to talk less, and in doing so, we have received criticism from fans.

"But in doing so, we feel that we showed respect for the legal process.

"We insisted on our innocence. We believe in our president and his vision shall still guide us for success."

A total of 93 officials and players are on trial, accused of helping to rig domestic matches last season.
