In the statement made by the yellow-dark blue club, it was stated that it was surprising that Ali Şansalan, who managed the match played last night between Fraport TAV Antalyaspor and Beşiktaş in the league, was appointed as the VAR referee for the Medipol Başakşehir-Fenerbahçe match one day later.
In the statement emphasizing that the physical and mental fatigue of referee Şansalan could adversely affect his performance, the following statements were used:
“The physical and mental fatigue of a referee who probably traveled to Istanbul at night or early in the morning after the match played in Antalya, which started at 19.00 and ended at 20.45, should be ignored when there are numerous serious factors that will affect his performance. It creates question marks in the minds. It is known to the entire sports community that instant reflexes are very important for a referee to show an efficient performance, and this is directly related to the state of rest and fatigue.”
It was stated that the decision, in which Fenerbahçe canceled the goal in one position in the fight against Konyaspor last season, is in the memories, and the following was recorded:
“In addition, the fact that Mr. Fırat Aydınus, who will serve as the middle referee of our match, will take part in the Medipol Başakşehir-Fenerbahçe match together with the TFF representative Cenk Altun, who has been on the public agenda in 2019, unfortunately, has drawn our attention as another factor that is likely to affect the referee’s performance. We present all these critical steps and our concern to the public, and we would like to draw the attention of the Turkish Football Federation, all relevant units and referees to the fair and careful match management.
