Fenerbache have been thrown out of this season’s Champion’s League by UEFA due to an ongoing match-fixing investigation. Their place will be taken by last year’s Turkish runner-up Trabzonspor. It has been a tumultuous summer in Turkey highlighted by the video above of a friendly being halted due to crowd’s protesting.

A possible further consequence of today’s decision is that the expected transfer of Everton’s Jospeh Yobo to Fenerbache for £3m may no longer go ahead.
