UEFA Bans Galatasaray From European Competitions
- Updated: March 2, 2016
Istanbul, Turkey – Galatasaray have been suspended from European competition for two years for breaching financial fair play rules, UEFA confirmed in a statement.
European soccer’s governing body said in January that the Turkish champions had repeatedly broken the rules on the level of financial losses allowed.
A ban has now been imposed after Galatasaray failed to comply with financial fair play settlement terms.
The Istanbul club is in fifth place in Turkey’s Super League. Should they finish in that position, Galatasaray would automatically be outside the qualifying places for next season’s Champions League and Europa League.
Notable players who could see these events affect their future at the club include Uruguayan goalkeeper Fernando Muslera, Dutch superstar Wesley Sneijder, Arsenal loanee Lukas Podolski, and club captain Selcuk Inan.
This may also close the doors for a possible return of prodigal son, Arda Turan who is not having the season he expected with the Catalan club Barcelona, after spending six months without any playing time due to the sanctions on the Cule club.
Galatasaray official Iskender Baydar said that club directors are “examining the text of the decision” and will issue a statement later.
