“Millwall will search the fans for Turkey flags when it plays Leeds on Saturday to avoid a repeat of last season’s taunts over the two Leeds fans stabbed to death in Istanbul in 2000,” the Daily Mail reported on March 23. “The Lions issued bans when supporters baited the visitors at the New Den over the deaths of two fans before the UEFA Cup semifinal against Galatasaray in Istanbul.”
Last year, Millwall has handed indefinite bans to four supporters after waving Turkish flags to taunt Leeds United fans.
“Millwall Football Club strongly condemns the inflammatory behavior of certain individuals who waved Turkish flags and shirts during Saturday’s match against Leeds United,” the London-based club’s website has said.
