Former FC Barcelona Star Sentenced To Jail

Former FC Barcelona Star Sentenced To Jail

He is not due to spend any time in jail, though, with the sentence suspended as long as he avoids any further legal issues for a period of five years.

The incident occurred after Turan, who is now on loan at Istanbul Basaksehir - got into a brawl with pop singer Berkay Sahin and left him with a broken nose.

The footballer, 32, then turned up at the hospital and shot at the floor.

Arda Turan has been sentenced to two years and eight months in prison, but will not serve any time after the court deferred the verdict.

His near three-year sentence comes amid charges for causing panic, illegal possession of weapons and causing intentional injury.

The court awarded Turan a sentence of nearly three years, but he won't serve time in prison unless he commits another crime within the next half-decade.

Basaksehir have since confirmed that they have fined the 32-year-old 2.5 million Turkish lira (£350,648) for the incident, with the final hearing of the case heard in court today.

He was taken to hospital for surgery in a nearby hospital where Turan later showed up reportedly asking to be forgiven.

Writing on Instagram on Wednesday, Turan apologised to his club and his family for his "momentary mistake".

He joined Barcelona from Atletico Madrid for 34 million euros (US$37.45 million) in 2015, winning four trophies, making 55 appearances and scoring 15 goals for the Catalan club.

Last year, Turan received a 16-game ban for shoving an assistant referee with both hands.
