“The issue of Yusuf Demir is widely discussed in the public. It is being discussed whether he can play in the Turkish status or not. Of course, according to the current TFF instructions, it is not possible for Yusuf to play in the Turkish status at the moment. This instruction made in 2015… The instructions are made by the TFF Board of Directors, and the status changes are made by the TFF General Assembly. Therefore, at its first meeting, the board of directors may make a change of instruction to prevent similar grievances. If all players with the citizenship of the Republic of Turkey make an instruction change that any player can play in the domestic status, it will solve the problem… Therefore, it is not very difficult to change. If this instruction causes injustice There must be a will to solve this problem.”

It has been clearly regulated that it is closed to judicial remedy.”
