Trabzonspor's assistant coach, Egemen Korkmaz, received a one-game ban from accessing the locker room and bench area for engaging in a physical altercation with a player from the opposing team.

The incident occurred after Fenerbahce secured a 3-2 victory over Trabzonspor at Papara Park, sparking confrontations. Numerous Trabzonspor supporters breached the field, aiming to assault the jubilant Fenerbahce players. Security personnel were swiftly deployed to quell the disturbances.

Online footage revealed confrontations involving Fenerbahce players, including Michy Batshuayi, Osayi-Samuel, and Oosterwolde, with the invading fans. Teammate Dominik Livakovic was attacked while heading towards the tunnel.
