Investigating potential provocative political behaviour by Turkish players

Investigating potential provocative political behaviour by Turkish players”

Politicians across France had shot to societal websites before to predict for Monday's game to be canceled after Turkish players achieved comparable salutes in Friday's victory over Albania after Cenk Tosun's final target in Istanbul.

In the tweet, the federation wrote that the team "dedicated their victory to our fearless soldiers and fellow martyrs".

Jean-Luc Melenchon, leader of France's populist left-wing party France Insoumise, tweeted that the "basis for sportsmanship" no longer existed. "They were better than us, they had a lot of opportunities but we made a lot of effort".

The office of French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian have announced that he will no longer be attending Monday's match, as was previously planned.

Kasapoglu said the controversy was unwarranted, and pointed to the fact that French star Antoine Griezmann had also given a military salute to French President Emmanuel Macron in June.

However, Pieyre-Alexandre Anglade, a part of the National Assembly from President Macron's celebration En Marche!

"Sport and football in particular have always been a space for protest and political affirmation".

"Both players stand for values that the club lives by", Düsseldorf sporting director Lutz Pfannenstiel said.

Uefa does not allow political gestures.

"National Rally spokesman Jordan Bardella added it might be" unthinkable" for Turkish gamers to carry out exactly the identical military salute on French soil.

Turkey's national side are being investigated by European soccer body UEFA after players celebrated their goal in a 1-1 draw against world champions France with a military salute to soldiers fighting in northeast Syria.

"Does the regulation prohibit references to politics and religion?"

UEFA said following the initial Turkish salute in a match against Albania that it would examine the situation. UEFA said later that it might inspect the incident.

UEFA said on Tuesday it was investigating "potential provocative political behavior" by the players during the match in Paris on Monday and another Euro 2020 qualifier against Albania on October 11.

Turkey's veteran coach Senol Gunes also defended the team's action after the draw with France, saying it was a gesture of respect for the armed forces, rather than a political statement or agitation.

Turkey's sports minister voiced support on Tuesday for national team players who saluted the country's soldiers during their Euro 2020 match with France.
