ANKARA, Turkey (AP) – The Turkish Football Federation says it has decided not to take any disciplinary measures against Fenerbahce or Trabzonspor in the midst of a growing match-fixing probe, allowing them to compete in the Champions League.
The federation said Monday it had decided to wait until after prosecutors file any indictments before possibly taking action.
Earlier, Turkish police detained 22 people, including Trabzonspor president Sadri Sener, for questioning in the investigation. Sener was detained a day after a court charged and jailed Fenerbahce president Aziz Yildirim, pending a trial.
Fenerbahce narrowly beat Trabzonspor for the Turkish league title this year, allowing both teams to advance to European soccer's top club competition.
