Turkey Part Ways With Head Coach Fatih Terim

share on:

Fatih Terim could be on the lookout for a new job after leaving his role as Turkey coach for a third time due to “non-football issues”.

The 63-year-old has overseen an underwhelming World Cup qualifying campaign so far with Turkey currently third in Group I after six games.

Terim’s side won just three matches, sitting behind joint-leaders Croatia and Iceland, but off-field problems have also played their part in his exit.

Fatih Terim 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 63-year-old former Fiorentina, AC Milan and Galatasaray boss, was seen in television footage fighting with a restaurant owner.

Turkish media said he and his sons-in-law left five men injured after the incident.

‘Some non-football issues have been wearing out our football director Fatih Terim and the management of Turkish football federation,’ TFF said on Wednesday.

‘The two sides agreed that it would be more healthy for both parties to part ways,’ it added.
