Barcelona Midfielder Arda Turan Quits International Football After Abuse Claim

Turkey captain Arda Turan has announced his retirement from international football after he allegedly abused a journalist on the Turkish team's plane.

The 30-year-old Barcelona midfielder was reported to have verbally and physically abused Bilal Mese on a flight following a friendly against Macedonia in Skopje on Monday.

Turan was kicked out of a training camp in Slovenia on Tuesday and quit the national team hours later.

"I think the time has come," he said.

"I am ending my career with the national team."
