Ali Koç, President of Fenerbahçe, helped carrying the coffin during the funeral ceremony at the stadium.
Thousands of Fenerbahçe fans and club executives attended the funeral ceremony of the 22-year-old fan on Nov. 4, who died just before the derby match between the Istanbul club and the rival Galatasaray on Nov. 2.
“We will not forget you” and “we will also be good guys when we die” read the banners unfurled by fans, in a reference to a social media post by Şener.
Footballers Mehmet Topal and Hasan Ali Kaldırım also addressed the crowd to bid farewell to the fan who passed away.
The burial service was held in the northwestern province of Kocaeli after a ceremony on Nov. 4.
