Last weekend before the 'Fenerbahçe SK-Galatasaray SK' Derby Match at the Fenerbahçe Stadium several Fenerbahçe fans pointed bananas to Galatasaray players, Didier Drogba and Emmanuel Eboue. A day after the match Fenerbahçe SK officials have organised a press conference and declared that the fans in the above picture were pointing the bananas to Fernando Muslera, and were not in an act of racism. Only an hour later new pictures were released to social media, invalidating their arguement.
Now the Turkish authorities, including the Turkish Government- as Turkey is a candidate of 2020 Olympics- are trying to ignore and trivialize this disgusting racism action.
I believe match fixing, racism and doping are the three poisons of the soul of sports. The Turkish Football Association and professionnal football clubs should stop pretending as 'three monkeys'.
