Let’s remind; The place you should serve is Turkish football, and it is obvious that your attitude does not serve Turkish football. We would like to remind you that stubbornness with the communities and stretching the football environment will not benefit the football of the country you are trying to manage.
“THE CONCERN THAT WILL CUT US UP IS RIGHT”
Our community advancing confidently to the championship; This practice, made as if justifying the concern that “they will block us”, will not go beyond satisfying personal egos and put the referee assigned to the match under an abnormal pressure days ago.
It is clear that such an appointment will disturb not only Beşiktaş but every community. In this context, we invite all biased and impartial football fans to carefully follow the match we will play with Kasımpaşa.
“YOU CAN’T EVEN EXPLAIN”
We know that you cannot explain because there is no explanation why you made this appointment. Our recommendation to the Central Referee Board is the following; If your intention is pure, assign Halil Umut Meler to all our matches until the end of the season. We are Beşiktaş! We play with our honor and win with our right! “
