The federation is considering suspending the Super League due to the coronavirus

Over the weekend all matches in the Turkish league have been played without an audience due to the coronavirus pandemic. In principle, the Galatasaray, which was supported by several clubs and by the players of the rest of the Turkish Super League team, are against this decision and have pressured the Federation to suspend the league.

Despite the request, the derby between Galatasaray – Besiktas (0-0) did not stop and it was played without an audience. After the derby, the Galatasaray coach Fatih Terim and the Uruguayan goalkeeper Fernando Muslera pointed out that “the life and health of the people is the most important thing and that they had to suspend all games. Soccer players worry about the coronavirus, they cannot continue playing and we demand that the league be paralyzed. “

Consequently the Turkish football federation must make a decision to stop all football competitions until the first week of April. Depending on how the COVID-19 pandemic evolves, the suspension time may be extended.

Those responsible for the federation are expected to make the decision official after the match that Göztepe and Rizespor will play on Tuesday afternoon.
