In what was an unfortunate incident after the game between Besiktas and Ankaragucu, the fans attacked the likes of Wout Weghorst and Cenk Tosun. The incident happened after the game with Besiktas winning over Ankaragucu. The controversy sparked after the 90th-minute call from the referee to oust Marlon Xavier. After the full-time whistle, players from both teams engage in a heated debate, followed by a fan invasion.

The assailant landed a flying kick on a number of players. Midfielder Salih Ucan was the victim of the crime alongside the likes of Everton forward Tosun and on loan Burnley striker Weghorst. Besiktas’ Josef de Souza threw the fan on the ground after which he was asked to leave the pitch. The videos of the incident have gone viral on the internet and are the talk of the town

After the incident, Besiktas vice-president Engin Baltaci spoke about the disastrous event. He started by stating that this team don’t want any violence on the field even if its isolated. He also reacted to Josef being shown the red card for throwing the fan on the ground. The club president said that the call from the referee is unacceptable as the player was trying to protect his teammate.

On the other hand, Baltaci praised Ankaragucu by saying that the team welcomed them well. In the end, he said that Josef’s red card needs to be revoked.

“We want no violence on the pitch, even if it is isolated,” Baltaci said, “While a fan running 80 meters kicked our players, our player Josef, who wanted to protect his friends, was shown a red card. This is unacceptable.

“Ankaragucu management welcomed and hosted us well… I will not comment on referee decisions, commentators will.

“Josef’s red card needs to be revoked. We will insist on this. Who would have received a red card if Josef had intervened in the attacker to protect the referee?”
