TFF deputy chairman resigns in surprise move

Turkish Football Federation Deputy Chairman Ufuk Ozerten has submitted his resignation letter to president in a surprise move.

It was not immediately clear why Ozerten wanted to quit his job.

TFF President Yildirim Demiroren reportedly refused to accept the resignation letter. ANKA news agency reported that Ozerten said the resignation is one-sided and said “I’m not in this work anymore.”

TFF spokesman Mete Duren confirmed the resignation of Ozerten, saying that the deputy chairman reportedly said he was “fed up.”
