      Meireles - Fener as big as Blues

      Raul Meireles is adamant Fenerbahce is as big a club as Chelsea and Liverpool after sealing a move to the Turkish giants.

      Meireles became the latest summer departure from Stamford Bridge on Monday night, with the Portugal midfielder signing a four-year deal to ply his trade in Istanbul.

      And the former Liverpool star immediately insisted he had not taken a step down in his career.

      "I can't wait to get started - Fenerbahce is as big a club as Chelsea, Liverpool and Porto," Meireles told FB TV, revealing former Anfield team-mate Dirk Kuyt had played a part in the pair being reunited in Turkey.

      "I had a great season playing at Liverpool with Kuyt. He told me about Fenerbahce and encouraged me to make the move.

      "I have friends playing in Turkey. Kuyt has told be on several occasions that Istanbul is a beautiful city, I'm very excited about the prospect of playing here."

      History

      The 29-year-old, who reportedly cost £8million just a year after joining Chelsea for £12million, added: "Fenerbahce are a big club, everybody knows what kind of history the club has.

      "I'm a team player, I love to win but what's more important is that the team wins.

      "I can promise the fans that I will always give it my all and be a professional.

      "For me, it's all about work, work, work. My goal is to win trophies here, I will do everything I can to try and make it happen."

      That mohawk he paraded around with last year was one of the oddest things I'd ever seen.  A balding guy with a mohawk.  Very strange.

      Fenerbahce's Raul Meireles suspended for 11 matches

      By Frank Tigani | Goal.com – 3 hours ago

      Fenerbahce midfielder Raul Meireles has been slapped with a 11-match suspension by Turkish Football Federation (TFF).

      The former Chelsea man was handed the sentence after being found guilty of spitting at a referee after he was given his marching orders for a second bookable offence during his side's 2-1 defeat to Galatasaray. 

      The Portuguese initially denied the allegation, and continued to plead his case that the referee had made a mistake in giving him a red card in the first place.

      It was originally thought that Meireles could be suspended for up to seven matches, however, the TFF have decided on a lengthier ban of 11 matches.

      The 29-year-old moved to the Turkish giants over the summer from Chelsea and has been a regular in the side since, making over 10 Super Lig appearances this season, scoring once.

      If you watch the first video ... it looks like he did not spit. When someone spits at you, you probably won't keep the same facial expression.

      i think there is a tiny change in the refs face, a change that someone who is above someone screaming in their face would make if someone was to spit on them. barely nothing but there, and he stood dignified and unchanged.

      however going by the second video he doesn't spit. he says a word with much expression. however there is TOO much expression, obviously, in the eyes of the power that be, and it apparently constitutes some kind of overstepping the boundaries. it is probably unfair if he is done for spitting though as he is clearly speaking.

      I don't know but maybe he could use the defence - When you enunciate, you spit!  :laugh:

      Fenerbahce's Raul Meireles has 11-match ban reduced to four games
      The Fenerbahce midfielder Raul Meireles has had his 11-match ban reduced to four matches on appeal, the club have confirmed.

      The former Chelsea player was banned after being accused of spitting at the referee after his red card in the Istanbul derby with Galatasaray.

      But the Turkish Football Federation's disciplinary committee ruled the Portugal international did not deliberately spit at Halis Ozkahya.

      It said it was "physically impossible" for him to have spat as he berated the referee for his sending-off as he was speaking throughout the incident.

      The 29-year-old will still have to serve a four-game ban for verbally abusing the referee. Meireles, who joined Fenerbahce from Chelsea in the summer, had vehemently denied the accusations and vowed to prove his innocence.
