Halilhodzic leaves Trabzonspor
Trabzonspor have parted company with coach Vahid Halilhodzic by mutual consent. The 62-year-old Bosnian coach has brought an end to his second spell as the club's coach, having briefly been in charge during the 2005/06 season. He took charge this summer, and his side had performed well in the Europa League, where they lie second in Group L, but failed to sparkle in the Turkish league, where they won just one of their first eight games. Trabzonspor are expected to name former Fenerbahce and Turkey coach Ersun Yanal as Halilhodzic's successor in the coming days.
Pektemek suffers injury
Besiktas forward Mustafa Pektemek suffered an injury following the 2-1 win against Partizan in the Europa League. He was taken to hospital after picking up a knock to his ankle. The Turkish international forward is expected to be out for at least a week. Besiktas are yet to release an official statement concerning the severity of his injury.
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.

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.
