Emre Belozoglu answered the allegations of the beaten judge: "I apologized many times"

"After the game, I told Meler that I was very upset about what happened and I apologized many times."

Idman.biz reports that Emre Belozoglu, the head coach of Ankaragucu, said this while responding to the allegations made by referee Halil Umut Meler.

A well-known figure of Turkish football said that as soon as he heard about the incident, he came to the dressing room and said that he was sad about what happened: "I apologized to him 3-4 times on behalf of my club. I regret the judge's statement today. If I am wrong, I have never hesitated to apologize."

The FIFA referee told the local press that even though club president Faruk Koca apologized to him, Belozoglu did not take this step: "What upsets me is that although the puncher apologized to me and my family in writing, Emre Belozoglu did not do it. If he has any proof of the apology, let him show it."

It should be noted that Halil Umut Meler was punched by the president of the home team Faruk Koca after the "Ankaragucu" - "Rizespor" match of the 15th round of the Super League, which ended with a score of 1:1. The violence continued after the judge fell to the ground.
