This was followed by Arda Turan resigning from the national team after assaulting a journalist.

The Barcelona star verbally and physically assaulted a Turkish sports journalist on a plane carrying the Turkish national side from Skopje, Macedonia to Trieste, Italy on June 5.

Then there was the kebab war incident which saw Terim getting into a brawl with the owner of a restaurant in Alacati, Cesme.

Terim’s son-in-law Ahmet Baran Cetin owns the Beeves Steakhouse in the Turkish beach resort Alacati.

Cetin has been in a dispute with the neighbouring Yuzevler restaurant over a partition wall.

The kebab shop is owned by Selahattin Aydogdu, the former president of Adana Demirspor football club and a Turkish FA director.

Terim and his bodyguards reportedly left five men injured as they drove 200 miles from Bodrum to trash the restaurant last week.
