Selçuk Dereli Officiates Man City v Copenhagen


Turkish official, Selçuk Dereli has been designated to referee Manchester City's UEFA Cup second leg tie against FC Copenhagen.

Selçuk Dereli

Physical education teacher Dereli took charge of the final of the Euro U19 championships in 2003. The 39-year-old Turk is renowned for allowing the game to freely flow and hardly ever brandishes yellow or red cards.

Selcuk Dereli's career however never really took off. He seems to be stuck officiating UEFA Cup qualifiers and less than glamorous World Cup matches.

International Referee - Since 2003
Hometown - Kahramanmaras - Turkey
Language - Turkish & English



Did you know?

Dereli nearly set a world record by allowing 16 minutes stoppage time during a match between Denizlispor & Fenerbahce in 2006. It was the last game of the season, which Fenebahce had to win for the Turkish championship.

The 90 minutes ended in a draw, however speculation was rife when suggestions circulated around Turkey that Dereli adding as much time as possible to give his favourite team, Fenerbahce an unfair opportunity to win. Incidentally they didn't!

I am glad to hear that he is a ref that will allow the game to flow, nothing is worse than a stop start ref fond of blowing his own whistle. Should be a good game, if we can get that early goal, will mean that the Danes will have to come out and then that would leave us space to get round the back and slice a few more rashers off.

Great news. He may speak English, but will certainly be able to teach our players a few of the words they'll need in their hotel in Istanbul...

He had a good game last night and tried to play the advantage when their player handled in the penalty area, but when the advantage was lost, he should still have awarded the penalty, I think he will lok again at that incident and changed his mind. The other was the consistent diving of FCK in the box and the look that Dunney gave him said it all.
