Besiktas vs. Fenerbahce game halted after player injured by object thrown from stands
The highly anticipated basketball game between Besiktas and Fenerbahce was marred by a shocking incident on Saturday night. The game was brought to a halt after an object thrown from the stands by Besiktas fans struck Fenerbahce’s Yam Madar in the head, causing injury to the Israeli guard.
The tension between the rival teams was palpable from the beginning, and Besiktas officials had to repeatedly ask their fans to refrain from throwing objects. However, deep into the second quarter, the situation took a dangerous turn when an object thrown from the stands hit Madar above his eye, resulting in a significant injury. He had to be treated for the injury and was later seen sitting on the bench with a bandage.
Madar, who recently made headlines with a dramatic victory basket against Real Madrid, managed to play for a brief 9 minutes and 27 seconds and score a single point before getting injured in the game against Besiktas.
The incident has sparked outrage and condemnation, with many calling for stricter measures to ensure the safety of players and officials during games. Fenerbahce manager Sertac Kosuoglu voiced his concern over the abusive chants and called for an announcement before the objects were thrown onto the field.
In another game in Turkey, Nimrod Levy also faced disappointment as his team, Samsonfur, suffered a 71-67 defeat at home against Buyukcekmece, marking their eighth consecutive loss.
The dangerous behavior of fans throwing objects during games has raised serious concerns, and it is hoped that appropriate action will be taken to prevent such incidents in the future, ensuring the safety and integrity of the game.
