(Haberturk Newspaper, 17 January 2011)
The Galatasaray Football Club council met yesterday in the wake
of Prime Minister Recep Tayyıp Erdoğan's hurried exit from the
new Galatasary stadium on Saturday because of boos and whistles
The embarrassed Galatasaray council chief Adnan Polat
declared that 'those who have cast this stain over the stadium's
opening night cannot be members of Galatasaray. We are
extremely grateful to the Prime Minister for the magnificent gift
he has given us with this stadium.'
Continuing, Polat said that 'the Prime Minister was subjected to
an insult he didn't deserve. Security will look at the video of the
crowd to identify the protesters and we will not let them enter the
stadium again. They will not spoil the atmosphere.'
