Istanbul Basaksehir midfielder Arda Turan has set a new football record as he will serve a 16-match suspension for unruly behaviour on the pitch.
He came on as a substitute in a crucial clash against Sivasspor in a game Basaksehir were leading 1-0 until stoppage time rolled around, and the hosts scored an own goal in the 93rd minute to make the scores 1-1.
In the process, Turan reacted angrily to being sent off and took out his frustration by pushing and abusing one of the assistants.
After assessing the incident, the Turkish Professional Football Discipline Board has decided to impose a lengthy ban, meaning that Turan will miss half of next season.
Turan – who has also been fined £6,800 – only linked up with Istanbul during the January transfer window and has contributed two goals in 11 league appearances.
Istanbul currently sit three points adrift of leaders Galatasaray in the league standings.
