Istanbul Derby Between Galatasaray vs Fenerbahce Descends Into Chaos After Mass Brawl

According to a Daily Mail report, Galatasaray’s Badou Ndiaye, on loan from Stoke, Fenerbahce’s former Tottenham forward Roberto Soldado and Jailson were all sent off following the altercation in the centre of the field.

The report claimed that Jailson appeared to have taunted the Galatasaray fans after scoring the equaliser and that enraged the home team, who charged at the Brazilian midfielder after the final whistle.

Jailson was seen running off the pitch with enraged Galatasaray chasing him.

Former Tottenham striker Roberto Soldado and Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel also seemed to be caught up in the melee with the former even pictured grasping the neck of Younes Belhanda.

Police had to be called onto the pitch as the skirmish even boiled over to the stands with both sets of supporters clashing. One fan even ran onto the pitch in all the confusion but was quickly stopped in his tracks by security personnel and taken away.

After 11 matches for both teams, Galatasaray are second in the Turkish Super Lig table with 20 points. However, with just two wins, four draws and five losses, Fenerbahce have just 10 points and languish in 15th place.
