‘Explain later what happened’
What was expected has come true: Burak Yilmaz is saying goodbye to Fortuna Sittard. Via Instagram, the Turkish striker announced that he is leaving for good.
“I will explain later what exactly happened,” writes Yilmaz, who was brought in early this season at the intercession of club owner Isitan Gün.
This season, Yilmaz was regularly valuable for Fortuna. In 26 games, he scored nine goals and provided four assists. Since early April, when they lost 4-0 to Ajax, the striker has not played a game.
Problems with salary payments
Problems arose with the payment of salaries. Club owner Gün and the company Azerion, part of Fortuna shareholder Principion, probably play a major role in this.
Clearly it appears that love has cooled. Yilmaz: “I will explain as soon as possible what happened with the club owner and Azerion. I wish you good luck.”
Fortuna says goodbye to trainer
Fortuna is also saying goodbye to trainer Julio Velázquez, several media reported. The expiring contract of the Spaniard, who succeeded Sjors Ultee at the beginning of this season, will not be renewed.
