hard to stay clean

2011-11-29

A few qualifiers and UEFA Cup matches and then it was over for Metin Tokat. Who;s father was FIFA referee Talat Tokat.

Ulusoy
There were times when if you wanted to have a career in football you had to be friendly with Hakan Ulusoy, for 8 years the president of the Turkish Football Federation. Tokat was known to hate Ulusoy and his mate referee Culcu, never saying outright they were corrupt but hinting on tv that "it is hard to stay clean as a referee".
Ulusoy demoted Tokat by assigning him less matches and he took care Tokat lost his FIFA badge, by withdrawing his name from the list.
