Turkish matches to resume Dec 19 following on-field punch

ANKARA : Turkey’s soccer federation chairman announced on Wednesday that matches in all top-tier leagues will resume on Tuesday of next week, following a one-week suspension due to an on-field attack on a referee by a club president.

The president of Ankaragucu, Faruk Koca, entered the ground and hit the referee in the face at the end of a Monday match. The referee, Halil Umut Meler, was released from hospital on Wednesday with a swollen eye but no other health difficulties.
