Galatasaray hope UEFA drop charges [divider]
Galatasaray board member Ali Dürüst has admitted he hopes UEFA drop charges made against the club.
UEFA charged Galatasaray and Dortmund following the crowd trouble in the last Champions League Group D game between the two sides.
Galatasaray board member Ali Dürüst said, “We submitted our defence to UEFA yesterday.
“We told UEFA that we did not organise any fan groups and also informed them about a number of security lapses as well as people who should never have been allowed to enter the stadium being allowed in.
“Hopefully UEFA see reason and drop charges against us.
“We are currently in a strong position, we have faith in our manager and we are leaders in the Süper Lig.
“We need to unite together and support our very experienced coach.”
The punishments handed to each side will be decided on 13 November by the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body.
