St Pauli released a Turkish defender over this shit because their fans were so upset, great move
He was an attacking midfielder and it was for showing support for the Turkish military on Instagram.
It was as they put it for supporting war which is not in line with the club ethos, they said they
'we cannot and should not attempt to gauge nuances in perceptions and attitudes from other cultural backgrounds in detail. That we reject acts of war is not open to doubt or discussion, however. These acts, and the expression of solidarity with them, run counter to the values of the club.'
St. Pauli havent released him they have said he is free to train with whoever he likes but he wont play again for the club. I believe they are still paying him.
