Galatasaray coach Fatih Terim will be on the sidelines of the pitch to manage his team in Saturday's title decider against Fenerbahçe after his penalty was postponed for a year by the Turkish Football Federation's (TFF) Arbitration Board.

Terim was suspended from three official games due to his unsportsmanlike behavior towards the referee of last Wednesday's Galatasaray-Trabzonspor match. Last Sunday Terim had to watch the Galatasaray-Beşiktaş game on the stands of Türk Telekom Arena. Galatasaray earlier requested for the postponement of the punishment. A victory or draw will make Galatasaray the champion, while Fenerbahçe will claim the title if it wins.
