The Professional Soccer Discipline Committee (PFDK) announced yesterday that Black Sea club Trabzonspor will play its next four official home games behind closed doors due to the behavior of its supporters during the Fenerbahçe match.
Trabzonspor received the harsh penalty for the behavior of its fans at last week's game against Fenerbahçe, in which it lost 3-1. The PFDK also imposed a TL 30,000 fine on Trabzonspor.
Furthermore, club Chairman Sadri Şener is also banned from attending games for 15 days and was also fined TL 15,000.
In last week's match, Emre Belözoğlu put Fenerbahçe ahead in the third minute and Cameroonian forward Henri Bienvenu doubled the score in the 31st, but goal-machine Burak Yılmaz pulled one back for Trabzonspor in the fourth minute of added time in the first half. Brazilian midfielder Cristian Baroni's goal in the 84th settled the deal: Trabzonspor 1, Fenerbahçe 3.
