ISTANBUL (AFP) -Turkish football club Fenerbahce said on Monday that the team would not play until the circumstances surrounding a gun attack on a bus carrying its players have been clarified.
The statement came just before the Turkish Football Federation (TFF) announced that the league games have been postponed for one week.
"We have no intention of playing until this incident has been fully resolved," club executive Deniz Tolga Aytore said of Saturday's incident, in which the driver of the team bus was hurt as players returned to Istanbul after beating Rizespor 5-1.
"Those games have no meaning anymore. No championship, no victory is more important than human life," he said, saying it falls upon the state to find the perpetrators.
