Turkish football is mourning the death of Konyaspor coach Tevfik Lav who died following a car accident late on Sunday night.

The 44-year-old was visiting his family in Manisa when his vehicle left the road near Turgutlu, a district of the city.

“Because of the busy league schedule, he had not been able to see his family for a long time,’ said Ibrahim Kaplan, Konyaspor’s director of football.

‘The team have a break until Tuesday and he had been given permission by the board to go to Manisa.”

Lav, who had previously coached Gaziantepspor, Siirt JSK and Denizlispor, started the season as coach of MKE AnkaragŸcŸ but joined Konyaspor in January.
