Beşiktaş manager Slaven Bilic revealed that Fenerbahçe midfielder Emre Belözoğlu wanted to start trouble in the Istanbul derby.
Belözoğlu had an altercation with Bilic in the first half and had to be restrained by Beşiktaş players.
“I did not do anything to Emre, I had a problem with the Fenerbahçe substitutes and staff entering our technical area,” Bilic told Lig Tv after the game.
“Emre then got involved and tried to cause trouble, I was not happy with the way the players tried to put pressure on us.”
Bilic was also involved in a spat with Belözoğlu in the last Fenerbahçe – Beşiktaş derby in the first half of the season.
Beşiktaş ended up losing the game at the Şükrü Saracoğlu stadium 1-0.
The Black Eagles remain in second place following the loss and failed to overtake leaders Galatasaray.
