Players of Galatasaray had to protect referees from their fans! Nihan Guneyligil literally covered the main referee with her body in order to prevent Galatasaray fans from hitting him with various objects!!! Scenes that we could not imagine that could happen in volleyball…
It has all started in the third set when Fenerbahce had the lead of 2-0 and 8:7. The main referee gave that 8th point to Fenerbahce after he thought that one player of Galatasaray made a net violation… That call started everything. Players and coaching staff of Galatasaray loudly protested, while home fans started throwing objects on the court and chanting abusive slogans. The main referee had no choice than to suspend the game for a while.
After a 20-minute break, the game continued and Fenerbahce defeated Galatasaray by 3-0.
