Emenike misses Fenerbahce training
Fenerbahce striker Emmanuel Emenike faces a race against the time to be fit for Sunday's league match against Besiktas. The Nigeria international did not participate in training on Wednesday due to a back problem. Emenike, the 2013 African Cup of Nations leading scorer, is still searching for his first goal in the Turkish league since August 31.
Onur Kivrak out for season after surgery
Turkey and Trabzonspor goalkeeper Onur Kivrak is likely to miss the remainder of the season after undergoing cruciate ligament surgery. The 26-year-old custodian was injured during the Europa League home defeat by Legia Warszawa on 2 October. He tore cruciate ligaments in his left knee. "Onur will be discharged from hospital after two days and then his rehabilition will begin. He will only be able to resume training after six months," Trabzonspor medic Hakan Bozdogan said.
Sosa ruled out for a month
Besiktas midfielder Jose Sosa has been ruled out for a month with injury. The Argentinian international had his game against Balikesirspor cut short when he had to be taken off on 43 minutes. The MR scans revealed that Sosa had ruptured a knee ligament and that he would be out for four to six weeks.
Mustafa Pektemek will also be out for two-weeks with a muscle tear in his upper left leg. Pektemek has also been removed from the national team squad as a result.

The second-place team enters in the second qualifying round of Europe's top football competition. At the end of each season, the bottom three teams of the Turkish Super League are directly relegated to the Second Division (Second League A). The top three finishers of the Turkish Second Division move into the Super League where they will compete in the next campaign.
