'He kicked me straight in the balls' - Emre hits out at Zokora after horror tackle

Emre Belozoglu hit out at Didier Zokora for his clumsy challenge during the recent Super Lig fixture between Fenerbahce and Trabzonspor.

Zokora was booked on the stroke of half-time after bringing down the Turkey international, but the Fenerbahce midfielder believed that the tackle warranted a harsher punishment than it received.

"He kicked me straight in the balls! Thank Allah I have a child, or I may not have become a father," Emre fumed to Vatan.

"His tackle should have been a red card, and he should have been banned for two matches."

Emre had recently been handed a two-match ban himself by the Turkish Football Federation (TFF) for foul and abusive language towards the Ivorian, but was not found guilty of using a racial slur.
