The team bus was shot at with a suspected rifle along the Sürmene-Araklı Highway.

The driver Ufuk Kıran was shot however, he managed to prevent the bus from careening off the highway into the sea stopping the rest of the team and staff from getting injured.

The driver managed to prevent the bus from swerving out of control and head of security Serdar Kılıç managed to hit the emergency breaks.

Turkish police have now detained two men over the armed attack but the investigation is still ongoing.

The Turkish Football Federation (TFF) reacted to the attack by suspending Süper Lig and Turkish Cup matches for a week.
