Barcelona news: Arda Turan reverses Turkey retirement after Lucescu talks


The Barcelona midfielder called time on his worldwide vocation yet a revolution in director has opened the entryway for his arrival


Arda Turan has turned around his choice to resign from worldwide football following talks with new Turkey head mentor Mircea Lucescu.


The Barcelona midfielder quit the national team in June in the wake of a quarrel with a writer on a flight once again from a 0-0 draw with Macedonia.

He later hit out at what he thought to be “defame” against himself and his family and affirmed at a media meeting that he would not play for Turkey once more.


In any case, in the wake of talking with Lucescu – who succeeded Fatih Terim as mentor on August 2 – the 30-year-old has chosen to make himself accessible for determination again.


“I re-assessed my choice in the wake of conversing with Lucescu,” he said in an announcement issued by means of his official Twitter account. “Footballers are required for the respect of the national group.


“I will play for the national group gladly in the following matches. I need to be with my companions in the Turkey side.”


Arda was said to have been angry that Milliyet journalist Bilal Mese was permitted to go on the plane, because of media reports that flowed following Turkey’s exit from Euro 2016 affirming infighting amongst players and a question with the Turkish Football Federation (TFF) over rewards.
