WHAT HAPPENED IN PARIS?
The scandal in Paris, wrote the sports writer of the Sabah newspaper Ömer Üründül in today’s column. Here are those words…
ÖMER ÜRÜDÜL: I WON’T BELIEVE HIM IF HE SAYS I WILL STAY IN THE EVENT
“Incredible events took place in the Champions League final in Paris, where Real Madrid won the league by beating Liverpool 1-0. If we put aside the football we watch, I wouldn’t believe it if they said that I would stay in such and such at the Stade de France, in the heart of Europe, because I was still there when the World Cup was played in this city in 1998. I saw the European Championship which they hosted in 2016. I didn’t come across any incident in any of them.”
“I WAS TAKEN, I WAS BROKEN”
“So what did I experience in the Champions League final played on May 28? I was only able to get into the stadium in an hour. Also, I was in the middle of the fight between the fans and the police. As a member of the press, I was beaten and kicked. Everything in the stadium was finished before the end of the first half. This is the first time I have seen that there is nothing left in the organization in such a short time.
PLAYER CHANGES ARE WRONGLY ANNOUNCED
“Let’s come to the pitch; during the match, 2 substitutions were announced incorrectly. Other names were called and then an apology was made, a correction was made. The VAR intervention lasted about 4 minutes. C It’s a record in a UEFA organization, I guess it’s a final. The stadium is as full as the entrance and exit. It was a disaster. They only opened one door out in the stadium with 80,000 fans. People were trying to pass each other by jumping over the iron bars.”
“It has already been proven that there was a big fiasco in France, the giant game started 36 minutes late. This delay, unprecedented until today, took place in the heart of Europe. Meanwhile, UEFA President Ceferin, 2012 After the European Championship, jointly hosted by Poland and Ukraine in , he issued a message of condemnation and said that no more championships would be held in venues primitive.
“THEY CAN’T SPILL WATER ON OUR HANDS”
“Come to us, we made the 2005 Champions League final clean and clear in Istanbul. Now we will host the Champions League final again next year. Considering the events in Paris, we we have to prepare with all seriousness and have a final that will set an example for the whole world. What I mean very comfortably is that they cannot pour water on our hands.
