Trabzonspor deny rumours that Ersun Yanal will be sacked [divider]
Trabzonspor have denied rumours that manager Ersun Yanal is on the verge of getting sacked.
The club released a statement confirming that Yanal will stay on as manager of Trabzonspor.
The statement read: “The team is starting to gel, we have no problem with the manager, these rumours are baseless.”
Yanal was appointed manager of Trabzonspor in November, replacing former Algerian national team coach Vahid Halilhodzic.
The Turkish manager led Fenerbahçe to the league title last season before falling out with the board and resigning.
The former Turkish national team manager is expected to stay at Trabzonspor for at least another season.
Trabzonspor are currently in sixth place, just one point off a top four spot.
