Turkey national team coach Fatih Terim parts ways with Turkey national team for ‘Non football related’ issues!

Terim has left his job two weeks after he was involved in a brawl in a west coast holiday town, the Turkish Football Federation (TFF) said in a statement on Wednesday.

The Turkish Football Federation statement said Terim, 63, and the federation agreed that “it would be healthier for both sides to part ways,” saying non-football related issues were harming both Terim and the federation.

It also thanked Terim, who has headed the national team since 2013, for his services.

Terim previously managed Galatasaray, AC Milan and Fiorentina. There was no word on who would replace him.

Turkey also lost their star player, Arda Turan, just a month ago, when he was sacked from National Duties by then Turkey manger Terim, after an ugly altercation with a Turkish journalist.
