Arda Turan has announced his retirement from the Turkish national team! The Barcelona midfielder called it quits due to his ongoing frustration with the media.  

His abrupt decision comes after journalist Bilal Mese tipped Turan over the edge. The 30 year old took to Instagram to explain the reasoning behind his international retirement.

“I’m leaving the national team, I will not play for Turkey any more,” he told Mundodeportivo.

“It’s sad but I don’t have any regrets.”

“I have played for Turkey at every age group.”

“I love my country, my flag and my national team.”

“I have made a lot of sacrifices, but it’s come to an end. I’m leaving the national team.”
