RR: Krunic and Origi’s futures could change amid Fenerbahce and Forest chaos

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan loanees Divock Origi and Rade Krunic have both seen their current clubs at the centre of a storm in recent days which could impact their future.

As Radio Rossonera reports, it was confirmed yesterday that Nottingham Forest have been handed a four-point deduction which bumps them down a place into the relegation zone.

Origi is on a loan deal there until the end of the season and they have a €4.5m option to buy, one that they seem unlikely to trigger anyway but would surely become impossible to see utilised if they were relegated.

The penalty imposed on Nottingham Forest sparked the anger of the Club which responded with a statement to the Premier League.

“The Commission’s logic is that clubs should only invest after making a profit on the development of their players. This reasoning destroys mobility in the football pyramid and the effect of the decision will be to drastically reduce the room for maneuver for all these clubs, leading to stagnation.

“We believe that the high levels of co-operation demonstrated by the club have not been reciprocated by the Premier League.”

Origi’s return would force Milan to find a new destination for him. The most likely idea remains the United States and the MLS, with LAFC having expressed an interest in January.

Meanwhile, Krunic’s future at Fenerbahce is back in question after last Sunday’s match at Trabzonspor and the consequent decisions that the Istanbul club expects to make.

The Bosnian midfielder is on a loan deal there until June which has an obligation to buy, but there is a condition that would cause the obligation to be dropped.

The violence in the Turkish championship on the occasion of Trabzonspor-Fenerbahce, with the home fans invading the pitch en masse and attacking the visiting players, risks also having consequences on the permanence of some players in the yellow and blue.

One of these is Krunic, who could even leave the club. Fenerbahce have scheduled an extraordinary Board of Directors meeting for next April 2nd and, in response to the attack suffered, extreme measures such as withdrawing from the league will be discussion.

As mentioned, Krunic moved to Turkey in January on loan with an obligation to buy, but there is one condition for the buy-out to become mandatory: that Fenerbahce remain in the top flight.

This would cease if the club’s decision on April 2nd was to withdraw the team from the top Turkish tournament.

  1. It doesnt really make any sense in regard of Krunic as it was the Trabzonspor fans who whent on a riot and invaded the field and even tried to attack the Fenerbache players after losing the match to them. Maybe some players might get a ban for beating up the Trabzon supporters but from what I could read amongst the comments in the wake of the match apparently one had drewn a knife and tried to attack Batshuayi but dropped it and got mauled by him.
    Please elaborate why that would mean that Fenerbache would get demoted when its clearly not them at fault ? Trabson on the other hand might get a hefty point reduction or something but i simply cant see Fenerbache being punsihed except for maybe a couple of players but did krunic actively take part in the fights that would constitute anything more than a few matches on the stands ?

    1. Ok missed the last part, that doesnt make any sense to be fair that they would withdrew from the league why the hell would they do that ? doesnt make the slightest sense to me.

      1. The club are very angry with the referees at the moment for past matches as well as them for not abandoning the match earlier.

        Chances are a withdrawal won’t happen as there is too much to lose and the TFF will give some sort of concession.

        1. Yeah i understand that and rightfully so, they want to put pressure on the FA but truth be told its a pretty empty threat because if they actually left the league where would they play and would their players be allowed to play for the international team if they moved to a foreign league and if they returned to the turkish league they most likely would have to fight their way back up the league pyramid so its difficult to not see it other than trying to put pressure on the FA,
          i can also see some concessions arrive in regard of the security and that will most likely be the end result maybe in combination with some stricter repercussions for hooligans and for that matter invading the field.

      2. Definitely makes no sense, and I think it’s just a dramatic reaction. If anything Trabzonspor will be given a hefty points penalty and some kind of a stadium ban.

        1. Yeah i agree and the only reason I can see this being brought up as a notion is that they want to put some pressure on the Turkish FA to demand better security in the league but truth be told anyone who joins the Turkish league should know that they have some of the most volatile crowds around and that is both in good and bad, I can also see Trabzon heavily punished because they had the home turf and the responsibility to keep it safe for everyone there and they massively failed on that point.

  2. Even if g o a t krunic comes back his contract is until 2025. One more squad rotation player and we could send musah on loan.

    Kid needs proper minutes, a full season of game time would do him good

  3. Disaster if fenerbahce resign . Having two of them back at the team will ruin summer plan. Origi alone already headache for ACM management, his 4m euro nett salary make other club not interested sign him

  4. Origi was always likely to become our problem again in the summer anyway and let’s be real, Fenerbache aren’t withdrawing from the league.

    Nothing to see here

  5. This is journalist speculation. Krunic is not coming back. Origi, though, will come back. Let’s hope MLS takes the hot potato from our hands.

  6. Krunic isn’t coming back and Fenerbahce isn’t leaving the league chiefly for financial reason. It would be a disaster for themselves if they did.

    Origi on the other hand… meh…

    1. I wouldn’t want that for my worst enemy to live down there but hopefully there is other solutions unless they actually wants to play down there themselves.
