Turkey's Besiktas has appointed Portuguese Carlos Carvalhal as the interim coach of the football team until Tayfur Havutcu is released from jail.
Coach Havutcu was arrested in a match-fixing probe last month.
Besiktas board decided Tuesday that Havutcu would remain as head coach of the team.
"However, considering Havutcu will not be able to train the team, the board decided to give the job to assistant coach Mr. Carlos Carvalhal, who joined Besiktas during a training camp in Austria, until our coach Tayfur Havutcu is back in the team," Besiktas said in a statament posted on its internet site.
