Avci replaces Hiddink as Turkey coach

Ankara:

The Turkish football federation has appointed Abdullah Avci as Turkey coach.

The federation says it has signed an agreement with Avci until May 31, 2015.

The 48-year-old Belediyespor coach formerly managed the Turkey U-17 team, guiding it to fourth place at the world championships in 2004.

Turkey parted ways with Guus Hiddink on Wednesday following Turkey's failure to qualify for next year's European Championship.

The federation, meanwhile, announced Thursday that fans of Besiktas, Fenerbahce, Galatasaray and Trabzonspor will not be allowed to attend away games this season. The measure was agreed upon by all the teams to avoid possible clashes between the supporters.
