Fenerbahce's Fernandao Slapped With Ban And Fine For Pelvic Thrust Celebration

Fernandao's interesting celebration has been flagged up by the Turkish Football Federation.


Besiktas entertained Fenerbahce in the hotly-contested Istanbul derby on Sunday, and the hosts ran out 3-1 winners, picking up all three points in the Super Lig clash.

Besiktas had to come behind after the visitors opened the scoring courtesy of their Brazilian striker.


He tapped in from a few yards to give his side the lead, and wheeled away in celebration directing a gesture towards the home fans.

Fernandao marked his goal by thrusting his pelvis. Obviously.

As mentioned, Besiktas fought back to eventually beat their neighbours.


But a few days removed from the feisty fixture, the TFF have slapped Fernandao with a sanction for his celebration.

He's been hit with a two-match suspension while fining him £11,500.


Per reports from Daily Mail, four of the seven person panel thought his gesture was unacceptable which resulted in a ban and fine. So, he nearly got away with it.

Ultimately Besiktas had the last laugh after they gained bragging rights through the 3-1 victory.


Domagoj Vida leveled before the interval, while their Portuguese winger bagged a brace including a sublime goal which put his side in front.

Unlucky, Fernandao.
