Fans clash as Galatasaray lift Turkish title

Thursday, May 17, 2012


Galatasaray lifted the Turkish title for the 18th time on Saturday after a goalless draw saw them deny rivals Fenerbahce, but crowd trouble marred the occasion as tensions escalated amid an enquiry into alleged match-fixing. Flag-waving Galatasaray fans greeted their success with a noisy concert of klaxons as thousands descended on Istanbul's Taksim thoroughfare.




But riot police had to deploy water cannon and tear gas to separate rival groups of fans as they exited Fenerbache's Sukru Saracoglu as emotions threatened to get out of hand, the Anatolia news agency reported.
