Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan paid a very special visit to the Wojska Polskiego stadium on Thursday to offer his support for Trabzonspor, which marked another victory against Legia Warsaw solidifying their spot in the top position of Group J for the UEFA Europa League.
Prime Minister Erdoğan, who happened to be in Poland on Thursday night, which he made a stop after an official visit to Finland and Sweden, stopped by to watch the end of Trabzonspor's away game against Legia in Warsaw, which the Turks won by 2-0.
Erdoğan then proceeded to visit the team in the locker rooms, where he congratulated and shook the hands of every player. "I am so very pleased. However, I was only able to make the end of the game. I hope that you will also win the game again Limassol and qualify for the next round as the leaders of your group. I want to congratulate all of the administrators, the technical staff and our footballers and wish the best of luck for our Trabzonspor," stated Erdoğan.
