Andy Brassell in Turkey

The Turkish SuperLig was always a potential tinderbox this season, against the background of a major match-fixing investigation and the champions Fenerbahce being refused entry to the Champions League. It certainly seemed that the introduction of a play-off system to decide the title after the regular 34-game season might be an unnecessary accentuation of the resulting tension.

He's got a history, you know...

Zokora told journalists in the post-match press conference at Fener's Sukru Saracoglu Stadium that he had reacted to Emre racially abusing him (in English), calling him a "f***ing n*****". The former Tottenham man apologised for having to utter the word, before expressing his disdain and shock. "What upsets me more," he continued, "is how disgraceful it is for a player who has African team-mates like (Moussa) Sow and (Joseph) Yobo to insult an African from another team."
