Diego Ribas is expected to make a return to the Fenerbahce starting XI for this weekends game against Çaykur Rizespor.

The Brazilian play-maker will fill in for Emre Belözoğlu who suffered an injury in Fenerbahce’s 2-0 victory over rivals Besiktas.

Manager Ismail Kartal held a meeting with Diego who was disappointed to be left out of both the Galatasaray and Besiktas derby games in recent weeks.

The 29-year-old signed with Fenerbahce in the summer but the Brazilian international has failed to cement his place in the starting XI.

The former Atletico Madrid play-maker has made six appearances however is yet to register an assist or goal for his new side.
