Turkish Super Lig to start from June 12

The Turkish Football Federation announced the Super Lig will resume from June 12, as tournaments all over Europe get back on the field.

Although the COVID-19 pandemic is still raging, some countries have eased lockdown measures and that is also allowing the football teams to get back to work.

After the Bundesliga started up again last week, others are on track to pick up their seasons.

The Turkish Super Lig is the latest to confirm it’ll resume from June 12 and will allow five substitutions rather than three per game.

Turkey to restart on June 12

The Turkish FA has announced that its top-flight league, the Super Lig, will resume on June 12.

The 2019-20 Super Lig was not suspended until March 12, more than a week after Serie A, but the mortality rate for coronavirus in Turkey is relatively low, with 3,520 deaths compared to almost 30,000 recorded in Italy.

According to the plans of the Turkish Football Federation (TFF), the season will restart on June 12 and end on July 26.

Giampaolo to save Milan €4m?

Marco Giampaolo will save Milan €4m if he becomes Fenerbahce’s next coach, it is reported.

Links between Giampaolo and Fener have intensified today, and Tuttosport claims Milan are keeping a close eye on negotiations.

That is because, as per the newspaper, the Rossoneri would be able to write off the coach’s contract if he is appointed by the Turkish club.

Although the 52-year-old was sacked by the Diavolo back in October, he remains on their payroll.

Giampaolo the next Italian in Turkey?

Marco Giampaolo will become only the seventh Italian coach to work in Turkey if he is named Fenerbahce’s next boss.

Giampaolo was sacked by Milan earlier last October, and the Serie A policy limiting coaches to one club per season has prevented him from returning to an Italian bench in 2019-20.

Now, reports in Turkey and Italy claim Fener want the unemployed 52-year-old to fill their managerial vacancy.

Demiral reassured by Juventus?

Juventus are reportedly easing the pressure on Merih Demiral by looking to tie him to a new deal this summer, but his recovery comes first.

The defender had stepped up when the Bianconeri needed it the most and cut a promising figure in the heart of the defence.

He basically replaced Matthijs de Ligt and partnered Leonardo Bonucci until he injured his ACL during a 2-1 win against Roma and was ruled out for the rest of the season.
