Barcelona loanee Ardan Turan’s been in the headlines but unfortunately for all the wrong reasons after he was sent off in stoppage time during Basaksehir’s 1-1 draw with Sivasspor on Friday.
The title race in Turkey is pretty exciting with just four points separating the top four teams now. Arda’s Basaksehir side are now second, level on points with Galatararay but having played a game more.
Basaksehir did look set for all three points on Friday after taking the lead after just 14 minutes. However, they had a man set off after 38 minutes and then Sivasspor equalised through Robinho (yes, that one) in stoppage time.
It all got a bit much for Arda Turan who lost his rag completely, had a pop at the linesman and well see you later. Check it out:

The result is a massive blow for Basaksehir and could spell the end of their title hopes, Arda Turan meanwhile can expect a ban.
