Ankara, Nov 21: Turkey's state-run news agency says Galatasaray's Ivory Coast defender, Emmanuel Eboue, was repeatedly pelted with objects during a Turkish football league derby against Besiktas.
The Anadolu Agency says Besiktas fans also shouted abuse at Galatasaray midfielder Engin Baytar during Sunday's game.
Video footage showed former Arsenal player Eboue being repeatedly hit on the head with objects, including a lighter and plastic water bottle.
Turkey's big four clubs do not allow visiting fans to attend games among them to prevent violence. Turkey in April also introduced stringent anti-hooliganism laws, including prison terms, for unruly fans.
There was no immediate comment from Turkey's football federation.
