Amedspor: They tried to criminalize us

WALL – Competing in the Turkish Football Federation (TFF) 2nd League White Group, Amedspor Club held a press conference on what happened after the Amedspor-Bursaspor match played in Diyarbakır on Sunday. Speaking at the meeting held at Şehmuz Özer Sports Facilities, Amedspor President Selahattin Yıldırım stated that they hosted Bursaspor players and managers in the city.

According to the news in the Mesopotamia News Agency, Reacting to the perception that Bursaspor wanted to create for their club after leaving the city, Yıldırım said, “They tried to criminalize us by making many provocative statements that did not happen after they left. In return for the hospitality shown, I leave the explanations of such clubs to the discretion of the sports public. Bursaspor Club is a lost, finished and relegated team. A team in debt. They waited for the Amedspor match to create a perception, it was a medicine for Amedspor’s disease.”


Stating that no foreign matter other than pet water bottles was thrown during the match, Yıldırım said, “In this case, it is a normal thing in matches. They misled the football public with the perception that the doner knife was thrown into the field,” he said. Stating that they have not broadcast the matches they played in Diyarbakır live until today, Yıldırım stated that they will only broadcast the matches to be played in the city from now on.

Pointing out that 600 cameras were active in the stadium and that there were members of the press during the match, Yıldırım said, “They created a perception as if this place was an arena. The perception they want to create does not reflect the reality in any way. Apart from the reaction of the fans that can be experienced in a normal football match that day, no events took place. No one’s hair was harmed and his nose was not bled,” he said, reacting to the statements made.


Showing the violent photos of Bursaspor fans taken on different dates, Yıldırım said, “We have never had such photos. War images are in these photos. We have never had any fans in our stands with knives in their hands. “Our supporters are against hooliganism,” he said. Stating that the fans unfurled the flag of the Federated Kurdistan Region during the match, Yıldırım said, “A lynching campaign was launched against our club because of a flag raised. This flag event has nothing to do with our club. Citizens detained in connection with the incident were released today,” he said.

Yıldırım, who read the report prepared by the representative of the TFF in the match, said that the report also confirmed them. Yıldırım stated that they will go to all away matches despite the negative perceptions desired to be created. (NEWS CENTER)
