The captain of the national team of Turkey Arda Turan announced the termination of performances for the national team, according to Spanish newspaper Marca.
He was expelled from the national team after the plane got into an argument with the journalist Bilal Mesh.
The conflict took place when Turkish team was returning from Macedonia.
Mesh said that the player attacked him shortly after boarding the aircraft and struck several blows, despite the fact that the Mesh was trying to protect a few colleagues and security personnel.
30-year-old midfielder played for the Turkish national team 96 games (some media report — 97).
