German-Turkish player Naki banned from football for life in Turkey over ‘ideological propaganda’
In effect, Naki will not be able to play football since any suspension longer than three years means a life-time ban.
The federation suspended and fined Naki because his comments had appeared on several internet outlets.
Earlier this January, Naki said shots were fired at his car while he was driving near the West German city of Aachen.
Stephan Kuhn, Naki’s lawyer, told German magazine Der Spiegel on Jan. 27 that the player would terminate his contract with Amedspor and had decided to remain in Germany.
Before playing for Amedspor, Naki had played for St. Pauli and SC Paderborn.
