Turkish computer hackers fake Fabio Bilica's transfer to Mallorca

The Brazilian defender was reported to be leaving Turkey for the Spanish side at the end of the season, but it has now been revealed it was an internet joke by hackers

A Turkish group of computer experts hacked into Mallorca's official website to publish a fake story stating that Fenerbahce's Fabio Bilica would join the Spanish outfit this summer.

Many believed the news was genuine until Mallorca later pulled down the article and Goal.com Turkey state that the group behind the incident are 'Inzi Sozluk'.

The group are also the founders of Istanbul BB's fan group, the Grey Owls, with Inzi Sozluk choosing to support the team due to them being one of the smaller sides in the Turkish city.

It is understood that the group targeted Fenerbahce due to their profile as one of the biggest teams in Turkey.

Neither Fenerbahce nor Mallorca are yet to speak out about the incident yet somewhat ironically, Turkish media expect Bilica to leave his current side this summer.
