After a while the team did not pay his salary. Therefore, he left the team. Subsequently, Sivasspor signed Badur where he began to shine and had two consecutive seasons where he and his teammates played the top of the table, missing the champion's trophy narrowly twice. After his successful time for Sivasspor, in January 2010, Trabzonspor acquired Badur's services for a transfer fee of €330,000.
