Yanal appointed new Fenerbahce manager

Turkey's former national coach Ersun Yanal was on Friday named as the new manager of Fenerbahce, who this week were kicked out of the Champions League for match-fixing.

Yanal joins the club on a one year deal after a two year spell with Eskisehirspor.

He succeeds Aykut Kocaman, who resigned at the end of last season after a second-place finish in the league behind their arch rivals Galatasaray.

Fenerbahce and another Turkish club Besiktas were barred from European competition next season by UEFA for their involvement in a corruption scandal.

Both clubs are appealing the verdict.
