Arda Turan gets record suspension for pushing official

Arda Turan probably wishes his 30-months loan from Barcelona was a bit shorter.

The Basaksehir midfielder is going to miss the rest of the season and the next 14 matches of next season following a record suspension for pushing a referee.

Turan has also been fined a little over USD 9000 for the incident, and the suspension works out to “10 matches for attacking the assistant referee, 3 matches for insulting him and another 3 for threatening him.”

Well, the insults!

Turan quit the Turkey national team after reports that he assaulted a sports journalist, so his anger isn’t limited to a single profession.

He also once threw a show at a linesman while playing for Atletico Madrid.
